THE Legends returned to the football pitch on Sunday – as stars from Spurs lined up against former favourites from Norwich in an entertaining encounter.

The previous night Gordon, McVeigh, McKenzie, Galvin, Falco, John Lacy and Gary Brooke were part of a successful evening of entertainment at the Winelodge function room in Oulton Broad as a Premiership Dinner was held.
