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.

"I understand it is a Wednesday night but this is such a unique and fun opportunity to raise money for a fantastic charity."

Doors for the event open at 6.30pm on Wednesday, September 18, with tickets priced at £10 available here.

Tickets will also be available for a charity raffle.
