Here is a look back at our archive photo collection of Norwich City V Aston Villa ahead of their game Saturday 27 Oct, 12:45pm
Villa won 4-1 at Carrow Road in April 1975 in Division League Cup with a late goal from Ray Graydon. Both clubs were promoted at season’s end. In 1984 Norwich knocked Villa out of the FA Cup, but lost to them six days later in the League Cup.
Players for both clubs include Kevin Keelan, John Deehan and John Fashanu.
Our earliest photos are from a Division 2 game played on 19th August 1967, City winning 1-0 and ending up 9th in the table. Our next photos are from a Division 2 match on 30th April 1975 which City lost 4-1, although City were promoted, along with Villa. Our third match, from Division 1, was played on 9th March 1985. On this occasion, it was a 2-2 draw, with City being relegated at the end of the season.
