2. Martin Peters

A winner of the 1966 World Cup with England, Martin Peters spent the twilight of his career at Carrow Road. Known as “the complete midfielder” as he could pass the ball well with either foot, was good in the air, and difficult to mark because of his movement. A free-kick specialist, Peters was described by England manager Sir Alf Ramsey, after a game against Scotland in 1968, as being “ten years ahead of his time”.

In the five years from March 1975 to August 1980, Martin played 232 games for the Canaries scoring fifty times. Twice the player-of-the-year at Carrow Road, Martin’s vision and ability helped the Canaries secure a regular spot in English Football’s top flight. In 1978, whilst still a Norwich City player, Peters was awarded an MBE for services to association football. He was inducted into the Norwich City Hall of Fame in 2002. He is a must in any list of greatest Norwich City players ever.

1. Kevin Keelan

Kevin Keelan is undeniably one of Norwich City’s greatest legends. A first-choice keeper from 1963 through to 1980, Kevin made 673 first-team appearances in goal for Norwich City. This tally consists of 571 league appearances, 32 FA Cup ties, 57 League Cup matches and 14 competitive others.

He was twice City Player of the Year and played for the City side which lost the 1973 League Cup Final to Tottenham Hotspur. It is most unlikely that Norwich will ever again see such commitment and longevity from any other player.

    Glad to see Keelan at number one. Commitment, style and loyalty to the club. And however, muddy and blooded , his socks stayed pulled up and in position. A legend.
