The Sandy Kennon Charity Golf Day in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society was due to be held Monday, April 30 at Gorleston Golf Club, but had to be cancelled due to the weather.

It has been rescheduled to Monday, May 14

Kennon played 255 times for Norwich City, between March 1959 and November 1964, including featuring in the 1958-59 cup run. He lived with dementia.
