Nine-year-old Jack teaches veteran Louis a thing or two!
Jack Brookes enjoyed a very special moment when he was invited to the Bristol City training ground to enjoy a session with his idol Louis Carey.
The nine-year-old met members of the squad before Christmas when they visited him at the Children's Hospice at Charlton Farm.
The players were keen to invite young Jack, an avid supporter, to Failand early in the New Year, and he got his chance this week.
He even took on Carey, the City stalwart who is closing in on the all-time appearance record set by John Atyeo during the 50s and 60s, in a one-on-one session.

Carey said: "When we visited the Children's Hospice in December it was clear for everyone to see how much Jack is in to his football and especially Bristol City.
"It was great to be able to welcome Jack and his family to the training ground and watch him in action. He's even taught me a thing or two!"
The players then arranged for Jack and his family to come and watch the team in action from the Premier Seating the following day against Leicester City.
Mother Lucy Brookes e-mailed the club to say afterwards to say: "Jack was very kindly invited to the training ground to meet the players and have a kickaround.
The players were amazing with Jack, especially Louis Carey, (kitman) Scott Murray and the staff."
