Former team-mates, the best of friends and terrace heroes forever.

Iwan Roberts and Darren Huckerby are used to being a pair. So they’re the perfect duo to kickstart a new Your Local Paper adventure after agreeing to become the first Caney’s Corner Live guests. They were well liked at most of the clubs they played for during their distinguished careers, but it was at Norwich City where they became idolised and to this day remain legendary figures.

It’s exactly why we can’t wait to have the pair in King’s Lynn next month to talk all things football, past and present, in front of a live audience – who will get the chance to ask questions of their own.

I’ve worked with Iwan before at an event in West Walton last year and he had the audience captivated all night with some great tales and insightful opinions. Now we’re throwing Hucks into the mix, we should be in for a real cracker.
