Cromer Town’s Norfolk Senior Cup quarter-final against Norwich City’s Under-21s will be played at the Football Development Centre (FDC) in Norwich tonight.

The match had already been postponed three times because the Crabs’ Cabbell Park pitch has been waterlogged and the match was rearranged again for tonight, as a 7.30pm kick-off.

It was decided that the game would be played at the FDC if Cabbell Park was out of action again and that decision was made after a pitch inspection yesterday morning, following Cromer’s home game against St Andrews on Saturday also being postponed.

Norfolk FA has confirmed Cromer Town will still be considered the home side and receive 100pc of the ticket sales from the match. Tickets are £5 for adults and concessions, and under-16s get in free.

Parking will be limited as the FDC, in Clover Hill Road in Bowthorpe, only has 250 spaces and has its usual busy night of five-a-side football booked in.

The venue has Community Sports Foundation courses running until 7pm so management from the FDC are asking that people wishing to park arrive after 7pm, to avoid congestion.

FDC management are also asking that anyone parking on the roads locally is considerate of local residents.

  • Well, that generated a lot of interest. Nobody`s interested in sport. It`s all about something to do on Saturday afternoon, replica shirts, tribalism and foolishness.

  • Now everybody knows what FDC stands for but, before this piece, may not have. I suppose `Football Development Centre, Bowthorpe` would`ve been too long-winded? Freezer should follow Davitt`s example... I bet the local residents will just love all that double parking and mad, red-faced people wearing foam rubber crab claws. Is there a nice pub nearby? Could a better venue have been found? Does anybody care?

  • .A good idea would be to sell Carrow Road at a grossly inflated price as football is no longer played there and play all future first team games at Bowthorpe. They won't need too much room for spectators next season either.
