Norwich City dusting down trophy cabinet after reaching cup quarter-final

Norwich FC trophy cabinet

Excited staff at Norwich City Football Club have begun dusting down their empty trophy cabinet after the magnificent achievement of reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time in 28 years.

Even though the Norfolk club must win another three games before lifting their first-ever proper trophy, preparations in the board room are underway.

Norwich spokesperson Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “Our trophy cabinet has remained empty since the club was formed on a carrot field in 1951.

“It’s always been upsetting to see our bigger local rivals, Ipswich Town, enjoying a packed trophy cabinet including gleaming European and domestic trophies.

They have won the UEFA Cup, FA Cup and the top-flight league championship.

“We participated in the UEFA Cup once.

“But now we are odds-on to win the FA Cup. We’re in the quarter-finals; what could possibly go wrong?”

Norwich scraped through the fifth round on penalties last night.

Club owner Delia Smith is desperate to fill the empty trophy cabinet with something.

A pal said: “She wakes up in the night screaming at trophies, ‘Where are you? Let’s be having you’, but it never works.”
