Canary fans who have dreamt of seeing Darren Huckerby tearing down the wing in yellow and green once again had their wishes fulfilled last night when he turned out for a Norwich City Legends team at Yarmouth's Wellesley Road.

Huckerby was part of a line-up of former Canaries stars including Dion Dublin, Jerry Goss, Ruel Fox, Craig Fleming and Chris Sutton in a match against a Yarmouth Legends XI.

And he did not disappoint a packed crowd of 2,500, scoring twice in a 4-4 draw.
