Orphans in Cambodia taught Norwich City’s ‘On the Ball City’ anthem

Penned in the 1890s and adopted by the Canaries when they were formed in 1902, On the Ball City is described as the world’s oldest football song still in use today.

But the famous anthem sung out by ity fans at home and away has now been taken up by a group of orphans in Cambodia.

City fan Sean Morgan, who runs the Asian Canaries Facebook page, has done charity work in Indonesia and Cambodia, and taught the famous anthem to the youngsters – who had been donated Canaries shirts by the club – when he was in Kampong Speu, Cambodia.
