Kevin Ratcliffe will return to the Deva dugout this week to manage Colin Murray's 'All-Star' side against a Chester FC legends team.
The game has been organised to raise funds for the cash-strapped Blues, who last month revealed they needed £50,000 in the short term in order to remain in business .
Since the revelations at a City Fans United meeting the club's supporters and the wider football community have rallied around the Blues and over £45,000 has now been raised, although the drive to raise more continues as the club bid to secure their longer term future.
Broadcaster Murray, a supporter of the Blues cause since their reformation back in 2010, drafted in ex-England and Liverpool striker Michael Owen after the game was announced and has now completed his line up.
And with three-time title winner with Chester, Neil Young, managing the Blues' select side, another ex-Deva boss will be back in the dugout after Ratcliffe, who managed Chester from 1995 to 1999, taking over the 'All-Star' team.
