The Young Seasiders meet their heroes

The Blackpool squad spent Thursday afternoon at one of the Young Seasiders favourite yearly events, their Christmas party.

The players signed various bits memorabilia and posed for photos with the youngsters, getting into the Christmas spirit.

Members not only spent time with the players, but also Santa, who gave out Blackpool-related presents.

The fun and games went on to until 8:30PM, with the disco being wrapped up after hours of singing and dancing.

Joining in the fun was Pool goalkeeper Matt Gilks, who said: “We enjoy the signing sessions, especially around this time of year, it’s good fun.

“I used to go and get all the Oldham players to sign my shirt, so we know what it’s like to see our heroes and have no problem in doing it.”

Kirk Broadfoot added: “It is all about the kids, if we can get some of them into football it can only help the community.

 “When I was a kid I used to go the Rangers sessions, and tonight it has made their party a wee bit special.”
