A special moment, 30 years ago this very day – and the man who walked Norwich City out at Wembley will be toasting the occasion.
Ken Brown's Canaries lifted the Milk Cup on March 24, 1985 at Wembley – the club's last major silverware success and an iconic moment in the reign of City's longest serving manager. 'I'm sure I'll raise a glass of wine to that win – after I've walked Oscar the dog,' beamed Brown from his Norfolk home. 'What a day it was – I can't believe how quickly the years have gone.'
With City's League Cup success passing another milestone, it prompts the obvious question: Will it ever happen again for Norwich?
With how English football has changed, the effects of the Premier League, some will feel not. But for Brown, his City success won't be the last.
'Will it happen again? Who can tell – football is all so unpredictable,' said the 81-year-old. 'I'd like to see it obviously, because the club has been part of my life. It would be great to see a day like that for the club again.
