Ethan is a loyal Luton Town fan and on Saturday walked proudly onto the pitch as the club's mascot, alongside his brothers Jack, four, and Brandon, 12.

Ethan's mum, Hannah Matthews, said: "It's the second time Ethan has been a mascot and all the people there were lovely."

Ethan was definitely his team's lucky mascot, watching Luton Town secure a 2-1 win against Wigan Athletic.
