The hair and the beard
We are left to reflect
On happy days from yesteryear

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Graham Paddon, a big player
In our team that reached the heights
“Cheers for the First Time”
Now we have to say ‘goodnight’

Notes

Sad to hear of the recent death of Graham Paddon at the age of 57. He was a skilful, strong and effective footballer. Played a major part in the Norwich City side promoted to Division One for the first time in 1972. I can remember the Pink ‘Un headline ‘Cheers for the First Time’ so clearly, can it really be 35 years ago? Crikey. Rest in peace Graham, you are remembered fondly at Carrow Road.
