Darley will honour past on and off-field club greats at a club centenary celebration at Crown Melbourne on Saturday night.
The Devils will launch a hall of fame at the gala event attended by a sell-out audience of 250, with 11 inaugural inductees to be announced, plus two legends.
Ongoing, there will be no more than four inductees each year, with a legend named every second year.
Darley president Mark Shelly said an enormous amount of work had gone into researching the club's history for the centenary celebration.
He said part of this had been finding and acknowledging the oldest surviving player - 99-year-old Pat Adair.
Adair was a 1949,1950 and 1952 premiership player.
Former Richmond and Collingwood player, and now broadcaster Brian Taylor will be master of ceremonies, with other special guests including past Hawthorn premiership and Gold Coast Suns player Campbell Brown and five-time Hawthorn premiership player Robert DiPierdomenico.
Darley was known as the Magpies when formed in 1919.
They played in the Melton and Bacchus Marsh District Football League until 1934, winning three senior premierships.
