With Norwich City taking on former Carrow Road boss Paul Lambert’s Aston Villa in the quarter final of the Capital One Cup next week, we’re appealing for Canaries fans to share their memories of League Cup runs of the past.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Were you at one of the games against Rochdale back in 1962 when Norwich beat the northern side 4-0 on aggregate to win the cup for the first time?

Were you down in the dumps at the old Wembley stadium in 1973 when a Ralph Coates goal won the cup for Tottenham? Or did you see next Tuesday’s opponents Aston Villa defeat the Canaries at the same ground in the final two years later?

Maybe you have happier memories of celebrating Norwich’s Milk Cup victory over Sunderland in 1985? And what was the best goal you’ve ever seen a Norwich City player score in the competition?

We’d love it if you would share your memorable moments of Norwich’s League Cup campaigns with us. We’re planning to run a piece featuring the best of them in the paper early next week.

Please email your memories and photographs to newsdesk@archant.co.uk and make sure you include your name, address and a telephone number we can get hold of you on.

  • I saw the `73 & `75 finals @ Wembley. Drove down from Scotland for the first one. City failed to score in either game, so I`ve never seen a "live" goal from us in a final. I did witness probably the worst player I`ve ever seen turn out for the Canaries, in the hapless Jim Blair. Forgotten which of the two games it was. It seemed every time he got the ball, he fell over!

  • Best goal I ever saw at Carrow Road, League Cup or otherwise, was against Leicester City in an early round of the 72-73 competition, autumn 72 it must have been, Jim Bone with the ball on the goal line half way between the goal and the corner flag, Barclay end, wall of Leicester defenders between him and the goal, every City player marked, so he hooks it over the goalie's head (Shilton, no less) and into the net.

  • I was at Carrow road to see them win the cup in 1962, the Cup being presented in the Geoffrey Watling stand, with the crowd all on the pitch.

  • Only went to Wembley three times. Saw the Villa and Spurs Games and a friendly England v Brazil. Only cup I saw Norwich win was the " Willhire Cup"...forgot the year!!

  • In 1972-1973 I was at Highbury for the quarter final when Graham Paddon scored a hat-trick and big Duncan was forced off with a collapsed lung. The semi final second leg against Chelsea was abandoned because of fog with about six minutes to go but we won the replay and I couldn't go to the final because it was my wedding day. I did make it in 1975 and 1985 though. Another day out in 2013?

  • Signed from St. Mirren to replace Jimmy Bone no less! Didn't stay long and he was off. Both games were 1-0 and I think it was Grayson scored from the spot for Villa, that brings back memories of a day out Brew.

  • At the 85 semi at Portman Road, I sat along the goal line, and Ipswich "scored" a perfectly good "second" goal, that entered the Norwich net, but was cleared from behind the line.What a different outcome that could have meant.

  • Firstly I supplied the green velvet suits for the 75 final. Secondly at the 85 semi at home to Ipswich I sat next to none other than Sir Alf Ramsey in the Norwich and Peterborough.
