Very few people possess the talent shared by Norwich city legends Darren Huckerby and Grant Holt.

But this weekend, readers of the Evening News and Eastern Daily Press will at least have the chance to look like them.

Ahead of the Norwich City Legends match on Sunday, we will be handing out masks with copies of the paper outside Carrow Road.

But the question is, are you a Holt or a Huckerby?

The pair will form part of the Norwich City Legends squad as it takes on Inter Forever for an exhibition match.

Other ex-Canaries stars taking part include Iwan Roberts, Chris Sutton, Bryan Gunn and Darren Eadie.

They will be pitched against the likes of Jurgen Klinsmann, Javier Zanetti, Marco Materazzi and Francesco Toldo.

The match, which kicks off at 2pm, will mark 25 years since City’s memorable 1993 Uefa Cup run.

During Norwich’s foray into the European competition, Mike Walker’s squad defeated Vitesse Arnhem and became the only English team to beat Bayern Munich at the Olympic Stadium.

Fans will have the chance to pick-up a Holt or a Huckerby mask prior to the game in our goody bags.

Holt, who scored 78 goals in 168 games for the Canaries, helped power the club from League One to the Premier League.

The striker left City in 2013 - a year after he was inducted into the club’s hall of fame.

Meanwhile, Huckerby, a winger, played a pivotal role for Norwich as they won the Championship title in 2003/04.

Scoring 48 goals in 203 appearances, he was named in the Norwich City greatest-ever XI following a fan vote in 2008.

Proceeds from the legends game will go towards the Community Sports Foundation’s project to build a sports facility in Horsford, near Norwich.

The Nest will feature a floodlit 3G football pitch, sports hall, gym, and seven grass football pitches once complete.

It is currently being built on the former Anglian Windows and Social Club site, on Holt Road.

Seven grass football pitches have been relayed as part of the £1.5m first phase, which is due to be complete this summer.
