Norwich City have named the 10 new members of their Hall of Fame. Two current players - Robert Green and Darren Huckerby - are included in the list and will join the 100 previously elected members from 2003 at a special Hall of Fame dinner at Carrow Road next month.
Norwich City have named the 10 new members of their Hall of Fame.
Two current players - Robert Green and Darren Huckerby - are included in the list and will join the 100 previously elected members from 2003 at a special Hall of Fame dinner at Carrow Road next month. The following afternoon, when City play Stoke, there will be a parade of all hall of Fame members in attendance.
However, club officials are trying to trace living relatives of three new members, Tom Halliday, John Howes and Tom Parker to invite them to receive the awards.
The new members are:
Max Briggs - Norfolk-born midfielder and member of the 1971-72 Second Division title winning team
Ollie Burton - Wales international half-back who moved on to Newcastle
Ian Butterworth - Skipper during the successful Mike Walker era
Robert Green - City's sixth full international who's hoping to go to the World Cup finals this summer
Tom Halliday - Defender in the 1933-34 team which won Division Three (South) title
John Howes - club secretary, among other roles, from 1902 to 1946
Darren Huckerby - Current player of the season
Mel Machin - Full-back and assistant manager for the 1985 Milk Cup victory
Tom Parker - Managed City to the 1933-34 Division Three (South) title
Mike Phelan - Skipper when City finished fourth in Division One and reached the FA Cup semi-finals in 1988-89.
New members of the Hall of Fame are elected by Norwich City's Historical Trust, which has three nominations; existing Hall of Fame members who vote for two new names; and the public, who elected half of the newcomers.
Butterworth, Howes and Parker were nominated by the Historical Trust while the Hall of Fame went for Green and Briggs.
The public vote was split into five categories, with Halliday nominated for the pre-war; Burton for the 50s and 60s; Phelan the 70s and 80s, Huckerby the 90s to present day and Machin for the Backroom Boys.
Anyone who knows living relatives of Tom Halliday, John Howes or Tom Parker should contact club secretary Kevan Platt.
