1984-1985 First Game of the Season

Norwich City opened up the 84-85 season at home to champions Liverpool.

It was an eventful debut for Steve Bruce who scored an own goal and almost knocked out Keith Bertchin after he scored Norwich's second goal.

It was Norwich's first year in the Hummel strip which replaced one of my favourites, the Adidas pinstripe.  This was the first season that shirt sponsors were allowed and Norwich signed up  with Poll & Withey Windows, a local manufacturer of double glazing. It was a good decision for them as Norwich would go on to wear their name at Wembley in the 1985 Milk Cup Final.
