Norwich City fans have been urged to get to Carrow Road early tomorrow to bid farewell to Wes Hoolahan, in his final game in Canaries colours.
The Irishman will wear the captain's armband for the Championship match against Leeds United and will be welcomed onto the pitch by a guard of honour, formed by his City team-mates and Leeds United players, before the 3pm kick-off.
Before the game, the club will present the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy for the Falcon Cranes Player of the Season. That presentation will take place from 2.35pm.
The club's Community Hero charity fundraiser Rob Metcalfe will be announced to the crowd at 2.45pm.
Ahead of the 3pm kick-off, fans sitting in blocks J through to N of the South Stand are urged to take their seats by 2.50pm, where they will find a yellow or green card.

It was announced earlier this week that it would be the Dubliner's last competitive match for the Canaries. It will be his 352nd appearance for the club since joining from Blackpool in 2008.
In that time he scored 53 goals and the club has promised to honour him with a testimonial match.
