The Wes and Russ celebration match will then kick-off at 3pm, with Simon Thomas and Jake Humphrey confirmed as the managers of the teams.
A host of former and current City stars are returning for the game, and both sides will wear the 2011-12 Premier League Norwich City kit – Team Wes lining up in green and Team Russ wearing yellow.
