Geoffrey Watling

Geoffrey Watling (1913 16 November 2004) was a president and chairman of Norwich City (19571973 and 1996).[1] A charity in his name was founded in 1993.[2]

A stand at Norwich's stadium, Carrow Road is named after Watling. He was awarded this honour because of his instrumental role in saving the club from bankruptcy, both in the 1950s and 1990s; his father had played a similar role in 1919. He has a road named in honour outside Carrow Road called "Geoffrey Watling Way".
