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.

Defender Jordan Spence, who joined Town during the January transfer window until the end of the season, said: “It was a great opportunity to meet some of the fans at the Planet Blue store.

“I have really appreciated the warm welcome I have received since joining the club and look forward to more opportunities to pass on my gratitude for the support.”
