With the club's first home game tomorrow, first team stars have been dropping off tickets, shirts and other goodies to fans across Stevenage.

First to receive some gifts were Jack, Eran, Thomas and Blake, who received season ticket cards and a free shirt courtesy of a home visit by Joel Byrom, Ben Nugent and Liam Smyth.

In a widely shared video, the young fans were so shocked they initially closed the door on their hometown heroes, before mum encouraged them to open up and accept the gifts.

Next up were Reuben and Elijah, who got a warm welcome and high-fives from Ben Kennedy, Tyler Denton and Dean Parrett before enjoying a kick-about in the back garden.
