Norwich City fans are being given the chance of a lifetime - to win a trip out to America to see Canaries' legend Darren Huckerby in action for Californian club San Jose Earthquakes.
The competition, a must for all City fans, is part of the new Canary Preview magazine which goes on sale on Saturday ahead of Norwich's pre-season friendly with a Manchester United XI at Carrow Road.
Huckerby, who played 203 times for City, scoring 48 goals, was released by former manager Glenn Roeder in May 2008 causing an outcry among fans.

“California really is an incredible place to visit. I look forward to meeting up after the game,” he added.
Matt Chambers, Canary Preview editor, said: “We're delighted to be able to offer Canary Preview readers the chance of winning this unbelievable prize. It's simply a once in a lifetime trip for any Norwich City fan, but clearly it will also appeal to a much wider audience - so don't miss your chance and make sure you buy a copy!"
