Together they were part of some of the Canaries' biggest glory days, and the stars will be hoping to show they have not lost the magic touch lining up for Dale Gordon's Norwich City Legends team.
The Legends team is managed by former City boss Dave Stringer, and a fan, willing to pay £500, can take part in the match for 30 minutes as part of the Legends team.
All the money raised from the match will be donated to Great Yarmouth Football Club, where Gordon is director of football.
Ex-Bloaters boss Bill Punton, who was a member of the Canaries' famous 1959 FA cup semi-final side, is taking charge of the Yarmouth Town X1.
Other stars from the 1959 team are expected to attend the match, along with members of the current squad, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their heroic cup exploits.
Former Norwich, Glasgow Rangers and West Ham star Gordon said the match would be a real boost for Yarmouth.
“Obviously Darren taking part has generated a massive amount of interest. There is a real buzz about the town at the moment and this is increasing the feelgood factor,” said Mr Gordon.
“There is just one more space left for a fan wanting to take part in what would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. It would make an unforgettable Christmas present for any Norwich City supporter.”
