A little bit about us. Barclay End Norwich and Along Come Norwich are two NCFC supporters groups dedicated to generating a better atmosphere at Carrow Road.

We've all been going to matches home and away for many seasons and have seen the atmosphere decline, for a number of reasons. 

We want to improve the Carrow Road atmosphere for everyone, so that it is an intimidating place for opposition players, but an enjoyable, inclusive and fun one for us all to watch football.  We've been really energised by the successes of the fan marches last season, while a number of you have helped hold flags and banners which we've funded by selling merchandise.

We now want to take things to the next level, and while some matters (such as those on the pitch) are out of our control, there are lots of things we can do to make Carrow Road a carnival-esque atmosphere week in, week out. To do that we need funding.

We want to put on larger scale displays and lots more flags and banners. We're also open to hearing your ideas too – please get in touch. 

To do this, we need your help, so we’re looking to raise funds specifically to purchase more flags, displays and banners to display in the stands. 

 
The money is withdrawn to a bank account for Barclay End Norwich specifically, which is managed primarily by David Wiltshire (with Thomas Markham-Uden as a backup) to pay suppliers for the banners and flags required. Periodically we will look to publish updates on here about what your money has been spent on.

**UPDATE - WE SMASHED THE £3K TARGET BUT WITH MORE MONEY WE CAN DO SO MUCH MORE AND WE HAVE SOME AMBITIOUS PLANS, ESPECIALLY FOR 10TH FEBRUARY WHEN IPSWICH ARRIVE IN THE FINE CITY**

One last thing. Just because something is hard, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. We believe that together we can make a difference and help the team we all love be as successful as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks to everyone for your donations - we just wanted to provide a small update as to where we've got to so far.

Since the fundraiser hit its target we’ve been busily designing, purchasing and waving flags in the Barclay End Lower tier. Your donations have made that happen – THANK YOU. In addition to those in the Barclay at the moment (around 500 flags, ish) we have another 200 smaller flags on order, and a few large ones – watch this space for those.

We’re now at a stage where the level of support, both within our fanbase and the club, is growing every day. We also have some different plans for derby day on 10 February 2019. As such we’re starting to bang the drum again to raise some more funds – which will specifically go into efforts for the Ipswich game. If you could help spread the word we’d be eternally grateful. To say thanks to anyone who is donating now we’re offering 20 stickers for a minimum £5 donation (UK shipping, little bit extra for international shipping). Tell your friends, neighbours and colleagues and we’d love you forever.

Also, if you’re looking to get involved on matchdays come and see us at the back of Block E, or email us at alongcomenorwich@gmail.com or barclayendnorwich@hotmail.com

Hi All,

Thanks again for making the crowdfunder so successful, we were overwhelmed with how many people have donated so far.

We wanted to give you an update on things that are ongoing, in case you haven't see it on ACN or our social media channels. Ongoing stuff as follows:

1. We have a dedicated singing section agreed for the Lower Barclay for the Stevenage League Cup game on 14 August (exact area to be defined when season ticket holders have had the chance to take up their seats). To make it work properly we really need people to let us know if they're interested in coming along and joining in. Everyone is welcome, we want this to be an inclusive environment to back your team. If you'd like to be part of it please email us at barclayendnorwich@gmail.com

Further information available here:

2. We have some new flags ordered and in production for a display for the first home match on 11 August. We're looking for a number of people, who would need to be based in the Lower Barclay, to help us with this. It would mean being available around 15-20 minutes before kick off. If you could spare us your time we'd really appreciate it. Let us know if it's something you could do, again by email at barclayendnorwich@gmail.com

Thanks again
