Following the news that the Barclay End stand at Norwich City's Carrow Road stadium is to be sponsored, we take a look at the stand through the years.

Norwich City announced an historic deal confirming leading bookmakers Coral as new sponsors of the Barclay Stand at Carrow Road.

This is the first time the Barclay Stand has ever been sponsored, with the betting giants' logo also featuring on both the front and the back of the stand by the end of the month.

The Barclay stand will retain its historic name but will be labelled as the Barclay Stand sponsored by Coral.

The Barclay is named after Captain Evelyn Barclay, a former vice-president of the club, who donated the cost of roofing the original stand, which was built in 1937.

The stand was demolished in 1992 when a new two-tier structure, modelled on the River End, now the Norwich & Peterborough stand, was built in accordance with the recommendations of the Taylor Report following the Hillsborough disaster.
