While Peter Cullum waits for his big payday so that he can buy Norwich City, another Norwich insurance institution is wringing its hands over involvement with the club.

It seems there are divisions within the Snowball house as to whether Norwich's best known company should sponsor the local team.

Patrick Snowball is no football fan and gets pretty good mileage out of NU's support for UK athletics. But his son is a keen Canaries fan and often goes to games with intermediary business director Ken Wallace.

It seems that the casting vote could be with Mrs Snowball.
