Mark Metcalf

Norwich Career:  1980-1987 (1 appearance)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth: 25/09/1965
Nationality: English


Mark only played ten minutes for the Norwich City first team, coming on as substitute for Mark Barham in a away defeat at West Ham in November 1982. Aged only 17, a bright future looked assured for the Norwich born centre-half who had already won an FA Youth Cup winner's medal and been picked for the England Youth squad. However a broken leg in a reserve team match at Charlton destroyed all of these opportunities. He never was able to recover full fitness and was transfer listed in May 1985. Although Northampton and Doncaster showed interest, he was asked to re-sign for the Canaries in August 1985 to cover a player shortage. He stayed on Norwich's books until May 1987 but failed to add to his solitary first team appearance. Like many Canaries before (and indeed after) him, he moved into Norfolk's amateur football scene joining King's Lynn. In January 1988 he joined Wroxham where he scored 29 goals in 88 matches. He has since played for Lakeford United, Diss Town and Wymondham Town.
