Cobh Ramblers this afternoon plulled off quite a coup, as they announced a friendly fixture against former Premier League, now Championship side Norwich City

Norwich are now coached by German Daniel Farke, after he left Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The Canaries will visit St Colman’s Park on Wednesday July 5th, with a 7.30 kick off.

Speaking to CobhRamblers.ie earlier today, boss Stephen Henderson said, “We’re thrilled to host a club as prestigious as Norwich City. It’s a great opportunity for our supporters to watch international footballers up close in the tight confines of St Colman’s Park.”

“Our players will really enjoy the occaision and once again we feel the match against a team of this stature further endorses the huge strides Cobh Ramblers are making as a club.”

While Ramblers committee member Ian Ryan added, “We’re delighted to welcome Daniel Farke and his side to St Colman’s Park and we’re looking forward to playing them.”

“No doubt Stephen Henderson and the lads will give the Canaries a good game as they prepare for the start of the Championship season.”

The game will be Farke’s first in charge of Norwich, following his appointment last month. Farke had previously spent six years at the helm of Borussia Dortmund II, Dortmund’s reserve team.
