  • After winning best and fairest awards playing Junior/Senior Colts for the Birdwood Football Club in the Hills Football League, Scott Burns joined Norwood's Under 15 squad. The son of former North Adelaide (39 games) and West Adelaide (62 games) footballer Michael Burns, he was educated at Birdwood High School and rapidly developed into a classy and reliable footballer. He made four appearances for the Redlegs Under 17's in 1989 and 20 in 1990. In 1991 Burns played another nine games in the Under 17's, one in the Under 19's and 10 in the Reserves.

  • The Remarkable Plunketts: Norwood's First Royal Family
  • Historians spend countless hours raking through mountains of dross in the hope of finding a nugget of gold. Our club History Group recently came across a nugget of a different kind - a photograph of the 1893 Norwood and South Australian captain, 'Nug' Plunkett. Henry Archibald Plunkett had a brief, disjointed football career before his untimely death at 27 and no picture of him could be found in years of searching. He was the only one of the 56 Norwood captains since 1878 for whom we had no image.
