It was a day to remember for young Ipswich Town fans today – meeting their heroes at Portman Road.
Ten Blues stars took time out of their schedules to attend a special meet-and-greet session with supporters at the Planet Blue store.
Young and old queued up to have a chat with their favourite players, get an autograph and take a photograph for a memento to cherish.
Leading the line of players was top striker Tom Lawrence, the former Manchester United youngster who has scored a handful of stunning goals this season, as well as fan favourite Jonny Williams.
Other players at the half term event, which lasted an hour, were: Kieffer Moore, Emyr Huws, Myles Kenlock, Danny Rowe, Grant Ward, Jordan Spence, Josh Emmanuel and Toumani Diagouraga.
