Healy will join Keith Gillespie, Louis Saha, Lee Sharpe Ray Wilkins, Ronny Jonnson, ex-Rangers star Michael Mols and birthday boy Sammy McIlroy, who will celebrate his 60th by once again pulling on a United shirt. The former NI boss will even be presented with a special cake before kick-off.

The Legends team will take on Mid-Ulster League Intermediate B side Moneyslane at the club's Jubilee Park, near Banbridge, to mark the opening of their new facilities.

Healy, of course, made a guest appearance for Glenavon in their friendly against a Leeds United XI on Wednesday evening.

After the game, the Legends team will enjoy a gala dinner at the Europa Hotel, hosted by former Irish League player and manager Liam Beckett.

Tickets for the match (kick-off 2pm) are priced at £15 and are available via Ticketmaster.

Tickets for the gala dinner are also available and priced at £50.
