Martin Chivers

1968 - 1976

Legend

Third in our all-time list of goalscorers, Martin Chivers bagged 202 goals in a total of 415 first-team appearances - 174 in 367 competitive games - for the Club.

Signed in January 1968 to accompany Jimmy Greaves and Alan Gilzean up front, 'Big Chiv' hit 16 goals in 34 games before an injury set him back. But he would soon return and the honours piled up with the goals.

Capped 24 times by England, Chivers scored both goals as we toppled Aston Villa in the 1971 League Cup Final and bagged another double as we beat Wolves to lift the 1972 UEFA Cup.

He started in our 1973 League Cup win and was there again as we lost out in the 1974 UEFA Cup.

Chivers eventually left for Swiss outfit Servette in July 1976. He returned to Norwich City two years later and after a spell at Brighton he managed both Dorchester, Norwegian side FC Vard and Barnet.

He is still a regular at the Lane on matchdays where he is a popular member of our hospitality team.
