Darren Huckerby is the latest former Norwich City player to sign up for the Canary Legends v Ipswich Town Legends match taking place in Great Yarmouth next April.

The match, which will take place at the Wellesley - home of Great Yarmouth Town Football Club on Sunday, April 18, is being arranged by former canary winger Dale Gordon and will feature an all-star line-up of Norwich legends and a team of ex-Ipswich Town players.

Mr Gordon said: 'Darren is the latest player to sign up to play in the match next April. We have Bryan Gunn in goal and a whole team of former Canary players including Dion Dublin, Iwan Roberts, Ruel Fox, Darren Eadie and Jeremy Goss in the squad and Ipswich have announced a terrific line-up from across the years including Simon Milton, John Wark and Jason Dozell.'

Ipswich legends will be managed by Town hero Kevin Beattie and City by Milk Cup winning manager, Ken Brown.

Mr Gordon organised a City Legends v Yarmouth Town Legends game last January which drew a huge turn out and he is expecting another big crowd for this game.

He said: 'The interest in this one is phenomenal, it's the local derby thing that's really caught people's imagination. As well as the match itself we will be having a kiddies tournament, crossbar challenges and a real family fun day.'
