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.
One person tweeted: "Happened to mine three years ago and they still talk about it. Well done Stevenage."
