Organised by the International Pro Wrestling League, the "Norwood Mania" charity event for Cancer Research UK will see six live matches featuring professional wrestlers and a cameo from the League One club's top goal scorer.

It comes following Norwood's rise to international fame with his wrestling-themed goal GIF celebrations posted on the club's social media pages - including the famous 'people's elbow' move made famous by wrestler turned Hollywood actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

Which wrestling moves Norwood will pull out of his bag of tricks on the night remain unknwon, although organiser Mark Young hinted that town fans will be in for a treat when the WWE-adoring forward enters the ring.

He added: "A big red banner above the doors saying 'SELL OUT' would be incredible and add to a brilliant atmosphere.
