Northern Irishman Bobby Brennan enjoyed two separate spells with Norwich City.

The winger’s first stint lasted from 1953 to 1956 before he left to join Yarmouth Town after being released by then manager Tom Parker.

He rejoined the Canaries in 1957 and was part of the Canaries side that made it all the way to the semi-finals of the FA Cup in 1959, beating the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham along the way.

Brennan’s most famous moment in a City shirt was scoring the equaliser in the FA Cup semi-final against Luton Town at White Hart Lane.

However, the Canaries went on to lose the replay at St Andrews.

Brennan left Norwich in 1961 to become a coach at King’s Lynn Town and was inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame in 2002.
