"I can't wait for this tournament, to put the Claret & Blue shirt back on and take on our local rivals at an arena like the LG will be very special. The fans are the lifeblood of any football club and to have them playing such an integral part in the day will be a great reward for their loyal support over the years. It's bringing the Midlands together and so what better charity to support than Cure Leukaemia who help save lives all over the region."Lee Hendrie
"I've been behind this event from the start, I know it is going to be a memorable day supporting a great cause. The buzz you get from Derby matches is very special to both players and fans. To experience those rivalries once more playing with the fans we once played for will be such a special experience and one I am really looking forward to."Darren Purse
"I am very excited about being involved in this tournament. Fans always say that they can do better so this is perfect opportunity for them to show us in person! I think it will be a unique and memorable tournament for everyone involved and hopefully we will raise a huge amount of money for a great charity in the process. I look forward to lining up with some of my old teammates and you can be sure that we will want to win!"Matt Murray
