Peterborough United have tonight announced they'll play local rivals Cambridge United in a friendly this summer as a tribute to former player and manager Chris Turner.
Mr Turner is a legend at both clubs. He passed away in April following a battle with dementia.
The game will be played at Peterborough's ABAX Stadium on August 1 (3pm kick-off).
"Chris was one of those rare breed of people who have played for and managed both Cambridge United and Peterborough.
The game is a chance for both sets of supporters to pay their respects and thank him for what he did for the two clubs, and we are looking forward to taking our team and supporters over to London Road.
In terms of what he achieved for Cambridge United, he signed many of the players that formed one of our most successful teams.
He loved by both clubs, was equally adored by many people and we look forward to the occasion doing his memory justice."
Peterborough United have signed former West Ham and Ipswich Town midfielder Jack Collison on a one-year deal.
The 26-year-old has been a free agent since leaving Portman Road, and had attracted interest from a number of clubs.
'It feels a bit like a fairytale because I started my career at Peterborough in the Academy so it is great to be back here. I knew the manager back then and I have been speaking with him and I believe in his plans for this football club. The manager has played a massive part in my decision to sign here.
I had a great time with West Ham and have been working extremely hard day and night to get myself ready for a new challenge this summer and I am looking forward to meeting the boys in the dressing room in pre-season and getting out there on the pitch."

Dave Robertson has been confirmed as the new manager of Peterborough United.
The former soldier has just signed a three year deal with the club alongside Grant McCann as assistant manager.
Club chairman Darragh MacAnthony told the club's website:
The new management team are well aware I yearn for winning a title, yearn for healthy cup runs, yearn for goals galore and ultimately to be entertained with the style of football we play. The club has invested nearly £200k in a new pitch for the upcoming season, one I’m told will be up there with the best of them and with our recruitment process well under way, I have no doubt success will follow and next season could and should indeed be one of our best yet.
Football fans have bid a fond farewell to former Peterborough United and Cambridge United Manager Chris Turner.
Fans joined friends and family at the funeral for the 64-year-old which took place at Peterborough Cathedral this morning.
He died last month after being diagnosed with dementia eight years ago.
"There's only one word for Chris and that's immense.
He is the epitome of the word legend. He's done everything at the Football Club, right through from owning it, running it, managing it, playing for it.
He's never to be forgotten. He was a wonderful man."

Peterborough United's Michael Bostwick has signed a new three-and-a-half year contract with the club.
The 26-year-old joined Posh from Stevenage in 2012, and has gone on to make over 100 appearances.
'It is a massive signing for the football club. He is a fantastic player and a fantastic leader in the dressing room and it is really exciting for us as a management team and it is exciting for the rest of the players in that dressing room.
I am sure it is exciting for the supporters too because I think they recognise what a talent he is. We hope that Michael will be a key part of what we are trying to achieve at this football club."
Peterborough United have tweeted a message of support to their former player Britt Assombalonga, after the striker was ruled out for a year with a serious knee injury.

He has now undergone surgery and Posh have wished him the best of luck in his recovery.
Assombalonga has scored 15 goals for Forest since moving to The City Ground for £5.5million in the summer.
Nottingham Forest have vowed to pay Peterborough United the money owed for the transfer of Britt Assombalonga "imminently."Read the full story ›
