They recruit fans young at Sheffield Steelers...but Freddie Carnall must be the youngest of all.
Little Freddie was born at 9.18am on Wednesday – but was still at the Steelers 4-1 victory over Edinburgh at 7.30pm that night with big sister Lola and mum Jennie and dad Scott.
Steelers captain Steven Goertzen said: “That’s some dedication. When we heard that a little lad less than a day old was in the building we couldn’t believe it.
“We will have to get little Freddie a Steelers shirt. I’m pleased we won for the little fellow.”
