Two brothers who lost their much loved dog in a house fire that ruined everything downstairs in the family home have been treated to a day at Peterborough United Football club to meet their favourite players.
Six year old Declan Shaw and his five year old brother Noah, received bags of goodies from POSH players including a signed match ball, clothing, a shirt worn in the FA cup and a tour of the changing rooms.
Mum Charlene said: “The boys faces lit up, to them their favourite players Jon Taylor and Martin Sameulsen are the biggest celebrities on the planet.
“They haven’t stopped going on about meeting them, it has made their year, in fact I think they will never stop talking about the day we went to POSH.”
Charlene, of East Delph, Whittlesey, said: “We were all really touched by the fact this was arranged for us and need to say a big thankyou to Colin Martin and Brian Parker who made the day possible and also everybody at the club.”
The fire happened in January and is believed to be due to an electrical fault.
Charlene came back from the afternoon school run and opened the door to find their house full of thick black smoke.

Their nine month old Patterjack dog Dudley died in the blaze and they lost everything they owned downstairs due to smoke damage.
Since the blaze the family have been living with Charlene’s grandad in his two bedroom home while they wait for their house to be redecorated.
They move back in this weekend thanks to their landlord who arranged for the building work to be completed within eight weeks.
