History
  Norwich were originally formed at a meeting held in the Criterion Cafe in the city's White Lion Street in June 1902. Their first competitive match was against Lowestoft Town in an FA Cup preliminary round match in September that year, where they lost 5-0. In March 1905 the club turned professional and entered the Southern League, where they remained until the end of the 1919-20 season when the Football League set up a Third Division. With crowds on the up, they were forced to move from Newmarket Road to The Nest on Rosary Road. But in 1917 the club went into voluntary liquidation and was then formally wound up. In 1919 the club was reformed and joined the Football League for the start of the 1920-21 season. Under manager Jimmy Kerr, they won their first honours when becoming champions of Division Three (South) in the 1933-34 season and a year later they moved to Carrow Road. Having finished Division Three as runners-up in 1959-1960, the Canaries went on to lift the League Cup in 1962 and were losing finalists in both 1973 and 1975. Norwich were crowned Division Two champions in 1972, but had to wait 13 more years for their next piece of silverware, beating Sunderland in the League Cup final at Wembley under Ken Brown - the same season they were also relegated. But Brown led Norwich to instant promotion to Division One and they remained in the top-flight as initial members of the Premiership from 1992 until relegation in 1995. After nine years in the Football League, the Canaries - who also lost a Division One play-off final - are now back in the big time following a stunning transformation under manager Nigel Worthington.
