Mick Channon

Mick Channon
Norwich Career: 1982-1985 (112 appearances, 25 goals)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth: 28/11/1948 
Nationality: English


Currently a successful racehorse trainer, Mick spent the twilight of a successful footballing career at Carrow Road from 1982 to 1985. His career included over 900 professional games (112 for Norwich) generating over 300 goals (25 for Norwich) and 46 England caps (all before his move to Norfolk).

He began his career at Southampton turning professional in December 1965. 391 games for the Saints followed before a transfer to Manchester City in July 1977. 72 games and twenty six months later, he returned to Southampton where he added another 119 games to his tally. A short spell with Caroline Hills FC in Hong Kong and a loan spell at Newcastle preceded his move to Bristol Rovers in October 1982. Two months later he was signed by Ken Brown and he remained at Carrow Road until August 1985. In that spell was another appearance at Wembley as the Canaries beat Sunderland 1-0 to win the 1985 Milk Cup Final. He returned to the South Coast for a short spell at Portsmouth before briefly joining Irish side Finn Harps. A true entertainer in every sense of the world, Channon is most likely to be remembered for his windmilling arm salute every time he scored.

According to Mike Davage's "Canaries Flown From The Nest" article in the 1998/99 club handbook, Channon had trained 345 winners in flat races at the start of the 1998 season. His best total was 74 in 1994.
