The game, on Sunday July 14, is designed to raise funds for the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.

The 3.00pm fixture will mark the first time Liverpool FC have visited Valley Parade in close to two decades.

Darby said: “I am extremely grateful City and Liverpool will be playing each other during pre-season in support of the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.

“They are two amazing clubs, who formed a massive part of my career. Both will always hold a special place in my heart.

“I cannot thank both clubs and sets of fans enough for their support.”
