The fledgling Norwich City Fans Social Club enjoyed further success on Wednesday night as a fantastic turnout of 26 teams packed the Norfolk Lounge for their inaugural quiz night.

An eclectic mix of football and general knowledge questions delivered by celebrity quizmaster Darren Eadie led to an evening of laughter, entertainment, the odd bit of bewilderment and a keenly fought battle for supremacy.

The event raised £630 for the Community Sports Foundation.

In the end, the spoils stayed at Carrow Road as the team headed up by David McNally ended the night victorious with an impressive score of 84 out of a possible 100. They narrowly fended off the team entered by fans group Forces2Canaries and the innovatively named Gary Penrice, Rice, Baby who chased the Norwich City chief executive team's hard as they finished joint second with 82 points.

A youthful Norwich City players team finished with a respectable 66 points and Kyle Lafferty and Ryan Bennett kindly helped with the prize raffle and winners presentation.
