Fortis in Procella!
On the back of the successful Fortis Army march in 2021 and 2022, the Club has decided to make the last home game every year feature a supporter march and guard for the team as they run out. This match will now be known as the Fortis Army. The feedback from the players who ran through the Fortis Army guard was that it was an amazing and motivating feeling to experience. All in attendance for the first march in 2021, including the coaches, players and supporters felt it was one of the proudest and best Norwood days to be part of.
With such compelling feedback, the march onto the ground to form a guard will now become a regular event and we will be welcoming all supporters to participate. More details to follow but be sure to come to the last home game, Saturday, August 26 as everyone wearing Norwood Red and Blue will be welcome to march out onto the ground and form a guard for the players to run through.
