On 9 April 1983 Cawston Rovers played in the Norfolk Primary Cup Final at Carrow Road which they won 2-1 against Britannia Prison.

The other most significant thing about the game which caused a media frenzy both locally and nationally was that it was the first time in British history, that a team of serving prisoners and wardens were allowed out of prison for an away fixture.
