The Nottingham Forest first-team squad met more than 200 Junior Reds members as part of a signing session at The City Ground.
The young fans who have signed up to the 2017-18 Junior Reds Membership were invited to attend the event on Monday and get the players' autographs and pose for pictures.
Goalkeeper Jordan Smith said he was delighted to meet so many young fans and hopes it can help inspire some future Forest stars.
He said: "It has been a great turnout. We do these signing sessions every year and it is a great opportunity to give back, especially to the young fans who are the next generation of Forest supporters. To get to spend a bit of time with them and sign their gear for them is great.
"It feels like not too long ago that I was on the other side of the table asking for my heroes to sign all my stuff. That gave me a bit of inspiration to get to where I am today so I am thankful for that and it shows the importance of days like today."
Monday's session was the first event in the Junior Reds events week with other members invited to further events this week.
Junior Reds memberships are still available and full details can be found here.
