To stand or not to stand..?

Vic Hopes, NCISA I had hoped that, by the time I needed to write my article, that I could have welcomed one, if not both, of the predicted new players to Carrow Road. Sadly not so.

Vic Hopes, NCISA

I had hoped that, by the time I needed to write my article, that I could have welcomed one, if not both, of the predicted new players to Carrow Road. Sadly not so.

This leaves me to misquote Shakespeare (not for the first time) by writing “To stand or not to stand, that is the question!”

Some time last year David Wiltshire had a letter published in one of our local papers about a national campaign called “Stand Up Sit Down “ which calls for the return of designated areas where supporters can safely stand without impairing the view of those who prefer to sit.

A few weeks ago Neil Adams wrote what I thought was a very well reasoned article in favour of standing as outlined above.

How would that go down at Carrow Road ?

Well, we at NCISA would like to hear from our members and fans in general to tell us what you think and we will forward your comments to the football club. You can contact us through our website, which is www.ncisa.co.uk, or you may telephone me on 01603 504273 with your views.

One of my other committee duties is to gather together in one place our association's history, which will be mainly in the form of press cuttings and photographs. My appeal is aimed mainly at former committee members who may have a few items tucked away at home and who are prepared to pass them on to me.

When players leave the club, for whatever reason, it is usually mixed feelings among supporters but I would like to say “thank you” to the most recently departed, especially Joe Lewis, right, and hope that they do well at their new clubs.

The same good wishes go to Shaun O'Hara, our recently departed finance chief, who did sterling work for our club during a period of financial crisis.
