Laurie Brown there’s an ex City player from the past.  Think it was the late great Duncan Forbes who came in to replace him at Carrow Road.  What a servant to the club he turned out to be.  #RIP LEGEND

It's a bit confusing Frontman, but Ken Brown never played for City as far as I can recall. His son Kenny (always called Kenny because his Dad was Ken) came up through Citys Youth system.

Ken Brown went to Norwich as John Bonds No.2, and became the Manager when John Bond took over at Man City.
Don't stop and never give up. If you have achieved all your objectives, you have set your targets too low!

I do apologise! I remember his England Amateur career, Northampton, Spurs, Arsenal and Altringham before Kings Lynn but was not aware of Norwich. I knew Ken wasn't player at Norwich! Wasn't well liked at King's Lynn after replacing Reg Davies, which prompted Cliff Jones to leave as he detested the man, and made enemies in the Spurs squad!!

That’s no problem Frontman.  I use to think Barry Bridges played for Norwich when in fact he was just from Norwich.  Ex England international.  Can’t remember but did he just Manage at Lynn and not play ?

Must have been so difficult coming from International football to Non League
