Norwich City's Main Stand burns down

On 25th October 1984, a fire broke out in the Main Stand at Carrow Road and destroyed about 40% of the stand. The stand had to be closed, eventually for the rest of the season, though the game 2 days later against QPR went ahead.

It was a topsy-turvy season for Norwich. They won the Milk Cup by beating Sunderland 1-0 at Wembley but an awful run of form (and some dubious match scheduling by the Football League) saw them relegated to the second division.

Here are the About Anglia and Look East reports of the fire.
