Norwood Mania Wrestling Event in Harwich
Tuesday, 3rd Sep 2019 09:49
Town striker James Norwood’s first foray into the world of wrestling - aside from his famed goal celebration GIFs - will take place in Harwich on Wednesday 18th September.
Norwood Mania is being organised by the International Pro Wrestling League and takes place at the Kingsway Hall in Harwich (6.30pm doors, 7pm bell).
The event, which features six live matches and a raffle, is raising money for Cancer Research with further information and tickets available here.
The striker, whose wrestling-themed celebration GIFs have gained international attention this season, explained how Norwood Mania came about when speaking on the Sky Sports WWE Lock Up podcast last week.
“I've been invited onto a wrestling show as a guest enforcer in a couple of weeks," he said.
"Somebody came to me and said they would put on an event for a charity of my choice and I said I'd love to do it for Cancer Research. He said we can do 10 matches and it would be somewhere near Ipswich.”

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
