Jonathan Phillips & Jason Hewitt have been drumming up the support in Barnsley today.
The Steelers duo paid a visit to 11 year old Jack Hawkins who is eagerly awaiting the release of the Steelers fixtures so he can bring his friends down in September to meet the new look Steelers team.
“Jack was great and so enthusiastic” said Jonathan “he wants the Steelers season to start tomorrow. I think Jason and I were hoping for another few weeks off”
“We invited Jack to the arena when the year starts” said Hewey “I think he is bringing all of his mates down. We will make sure they have a great time, I think his Mom will let him have a beer with the boys!
“I think as players sometimes you forget what a big part of peoples life’s the Steelers are and how keen they are to come out and support the team. Jack is a top lad, roll on September when we will make sure he has the best of nights”
