Referee Stuart Attwell suspended play for 15 minutes during the second half to allow groundstaff to clear snow from the pitch but then allowed play to resume - much to the surprise and delight of Norris.
Norris said: "I've never played in anything like that before. I played pub football in similar conditions when I was 18, for the Lord Westwood pub, and I think that was called off!
"Once we were going in to the dressing rooms, I thought that was it. That was the referee's chance. If he was going to call it off, then I thought he would do it then.
"It was not going to get any better in 10 minutes; if anything it was going to get worse. So I didn't expect us to come back out.
"Yet once we did, I didn't expect it to be called off. It would have been a difficult decision for the ref to call it off, when we were 3-0 up."
