This afternoon Stephen Dobbie, Steve Davies and Nathan Eccleston visited the children of Blackpool Victoria.
The trio handed out presents and spent time with the youngsters, many of whom hope to be home for Christmas.
Getting in the festive spirit, the children thought Christmas had come early, and were delighted to spend some time with their heroes.
The three players were happy to go along and spoke afterwards.
Steve Davies said: “This time of year, it’s nice to see the kids who aren’t feeling too well and give out presents.
Nathan Eccleston: “These kids have been here for quite a while, so coming up to Christmas if we can put a smile on their faces it’s no problem.
Stephen Dobbie: “Having kids myself, you don’t realise how lucky you are. Hopefully they get home for Christmas. Kids come to the game all the time, so to come and see them when they’re sick is only a minute of our time.”
