These pictures include shots from a cycling race in 1980, as well as of a cross country run, and school competitions.

One highlight is our photo of the Cromer Town football team after their win in the Southern League play off final against Sprowston Athletic.

And further afield, we have some great action shots of a rugby game between the North Walsham and Norwich sides, showing players leaping into the air to catch the ball and running down the pitch to score a try.

We’ve also got more recent snaps from the EDP’s Rising Stars tournament, of Cromer youngsters playing golf and tennis.
