This cropped up elsewhere on here in the summer, apparently the club's main sponsor is Construction and Building Services Recruitment Ltd.

Could be Community Benefit Society.

It's the legal name for the type of company in a (supporters) trust.

Actually it stands for County Building Services.

Check out the website for CBS Limited, a construction company based in Rochester Kent. Their site is countybsltd.co.uk and their logo is shown on their home page. Itís the same logo that Norwich CBS have on their shirts by way of a sponsor logo.

So no idea what the link up is between a building company in Kent and a football club from Spixworth, Norfolk but thatís what the CBS stands for

As stated above the initials are from the club sponsor, visited earlier in the season for a Vase game, part of a large Ďgoalsí type complex but good pitch, also used by Norfolk FA.

Did wonder why they dropped their village name but in fact the club had started in Norwich and were made up of Norwich Union insurance company employees, when the firm closed the works sports ground they moved to the village and after a while took the village name.

Now back in the city, have Norwich in their name plus their sponsors initials.
