Between matches, all of the players from the 16 competing teams rushed to meet Simon and Nik, a former Carss Park junior, with each youngster receiving a personally signed Sydney FC poster.
Many of the parents also took the opportunity to have their children photographed with the Sydney FC stars. In fact, in a slight miscalculation, one team was so keen, it players lined up for autographs at the same time its opposition was waiting to kick off.
Autographs were not restricted to Sydney FC posters, with youngsters requesting that Simon and Nik sign their footballs, track suits, shirts, shorts, socks and even boots.
