The Norwich City Fans Social Club swapped a stage for a screen on Thursday evening as they virtually welcomed Canaries first-team stars Tim Krul and Kieran Dowell to their latest fans’ forum.
Restrictions have prevented the group from holding any events at Carrow Road since March, so the volunteers have been creative and organised an inclusive, fun event that families could enjoy together from the comfort of their own homes.
Over 100 households came together virtually to watch two of their heroes share their insightful anecdotes to help raise money for the Community Sports Foundation.
The pair were quizzed by BBC Radio Norfolk’s Rob Butler, as well as taking questions from fans.
Some of the general questions asked by Rob were:
What were favourite books, favourite films, favourite food when eating out, worst dressed player, best dressed player, funniest player, favourite place in Norfolk, favourite place to go on holiday, favourite drink, best place to visit in Holland, boots/gloves?
