Norwich City old boys will be aiming to strike a derby blow against their old Suffolk rivals Ipswich Town in a legends game this Sunday at Yarmouth's Wellesley Road (3pm).

Ex-Canaries player Dale Gordon, who runs the Legends Lounge at the Bloaters' ground, has organised the game which could feature the likes of Darren Huckerby, pictured, Dion Dublin and Chris Sutton. Norwich's League Cup-winning boss Ken Brown will manage the City side with Ipswich stalwart Kevin Beattie managing an Ipswich select featuring the likes of John Wark and Russell Osman. “It is 25 years since Norwich beat Ipswich in the semi-final to go on and win the Milk Cup at Wembley,” said Gordon. “We wanted to put on a game involving high calibre players from both clubs.”
