Mel Rees of West
Bromwich Albion came to Norwich on loan in February 1992 as cover
for Mark Walton
absence from the game due to injury.
Mel began his career at Cardiff but later joined Watford. Loan spells
at Crewe, Southampton and Leyton Orient brought a variety of settings
for Mel to demonstrate his abilities before he joined WBA. After
his spell at Norwich, Mel joined Sheffield United and then finished
his career at Chesterfield.
It is with great sadness that I inform the visitors of this website
that Mel passed away due to cancer in 1993 at the age of 26.
