EX ENGLAND football international Luther Blissett is the latest star player signed to appear at Wellesley Road this month.

Blissett will be appearing for Dale Gordon's Norwich City Legends team against a Great Yarmouth Town X1 on Wednesday, January 28.

Best known for his prolific goal scoring record during the 80s at Watford, Blissett later moved to world soccer giants AC Milan for £1m. The striker earned 14 England caps scoring a hat trick on his debut against Luxembourg.

Gordon said: “Getting Luther to play is a great coup for us and for the fans coming to the game.

“He was a top quality striker and is a legend in British football, I am absolutely delighted he is able to join us.”
