Caring Homes treats Norwich City football fan to stadium visit

South stand brick

Lifelong Norwich City season ticket holder Sidney Ulph took a trip down memory lane with a visit to his beloved Carrow Road Stadium.

Sidney enjoyed the stadium tour with five other residents from Caring Homes’ Ivy Court Nursing Home in Norwich.

Sid said: “I never thought this would ever happen. To see all the trophies and sit in the players dressing room. When I go home now, I can shut my eyes and have all the memories.”

The tour, which included the Director’s Lounge, time in the trophy room, the players’ dressing room, players’ tunnel and the pitch, also gave Sid his first chance to see his brick on the South Stand that his family had bought him for his 91st birthday.

Judy Trivett, representing the club said, “It was such a pleasure to take Sid round Carrow Road as it obviously meant so much to him.”

Following the visit, Ivy Court has been thrilled to receive 20 complimentary tickets for the pre-season international with Toulouse in the Community Sports foundation stand and would like to thank the club for a fantastic time that they say Sid and fellow residents will treasure for a very long time.
