The Ken Barnes memorial match will take place this Saturday at Hyde's Ewen Fields.
A host of former City stars will roll back the years to honour the former City legend who passed away last July.
Barnes played nearly 300 times for the Blues and in an association with the club that lasted 46 years, he also worked as assistant manager, coach and chief scout.
Several of the youngsters he helped recruit will turn out on Saturday, 21 May at 3.00pm.
Admission will be £5 for adults and £3 for children, with all proceeds going to the Stroke Society Fund.
Team One will be coached by Shaun Goater and Paul Lake, while club ambassador Mike Summerbee will be in charge of Team Two. The two squads are:
Team One: Uwe Rosler, Paul Dickov, Asa Hartford, Andy Morrison, Peter Barnes, Ian Brightwell, Ian Scott, Kevin Reeves, Andy Dibble, Eric Nixon, Gerry Taggert, Kenny Clements, Nigel Gleghorn.
Team Two: Dave Bennett, Mike Milligan, Nicky Summerbee, Colin Hendry, Fitzroy Simpson, Kevin Horlock, Jim Melrose, Les Chapman, Jeff Whitley, Andy May, Neil Pointon, Richard Edghill, Mike Sheron.
A fundraising dinner will also take place soon - details will be released as and when we have them.
