Two Wroxham FC stalwarts who together have put in 100 years with the club have been made life members.
Tony Dickerson and Pat Penn joined the club as players in the late 1950s in junior football. When they hung up their boots the pair stayed on as committee members, helping to pilot the club through the Anglian Combination to Eastern Counties standard.
Dickerson held positions including chairman and chief executive and was Norfolk County FA chairman.
Penn, a qualified referee, filled many committee positions and is now chief executive. He said: 'It's been a wonderful 50 years since we first signed forms as Wroxham players. The rise...up into the present level of senior football has been tremendously exciting and both of us are proud to have been part of that success.'
