Legends assemble! The big day has arrived but if you couldn’t make it to Carrow Road for today’s fund-raising exhibition against Inter Forever, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Norwich City Legends take on Inter Forever at 2pm to raise funds for the Community Sports Foundation (CSF) and mark the approaching 25-year anniversary of the Canaries’ Uefa Cup run.
The famous ‘egg and cress’ shirts will be worn and legendary manager Mike Walker has flown in from Cyprus to return to the home dugout at Carrow Road for the game.
It’s all in aid of The Nest, CSF’s new community hub on the former Anglian Windows Sports & Social Club site near Norwich Airport, which will allow the charity to work with an additional 12,000 people a year.
Funds raised will go towards the £2.5million target of the Build The Nest campaign, which is needed to complete the £10.9m project and return a dilapidated site to community use.
City legends spanning the generations, from Bryan Gunn and Mark Bowen, through to Darren Huckerby and Grant Holt, will be providing the entertainment.
They will face former Inter stars including Jurgen Klinsman, and Javier Zanetti in an 80-minute exhibition – sponsored by Aviva – which will be followed by a penalty shoot-out if required.
