Connor Bagley, a student at Dereham Education and Soccer Academy (DESA), is holding the match between the Dereham’s first team and ex-DESA students.

Mr Bagley, from Thorpe St Andrew, is organising the event as part of his diploma in sport science.

He said: “I wanted to get the town involved a lot more with the club and create a real friendly environment.

“It would be nice to see the town come together as a whole mainly because you’re supporting your home club and it brings everyone together.
