LOTS of young Swindon Town fans were thrilled to meet one of their footballing heroes when striker Charlie Austin held a meet-and-greet. 

The Robins frontman paid a visit to Smyths Toy Story in Greenbridge Retail Park to help launch the next iteration of EA Sports' football game, FC 24, which was formerly known to many as the Fifa series. 

The prolific player posed for photographs with fans, signed autographs and left smiles on faces as he also promoted a Swindon Town FC-specific cover for the iconic video game, as well as revealing his official player rating for the game. 

A spokesperson for the football club posted a message on Twitter, thanking the public.

They said: "Thank you to all of the Swindon Town Football Club supporters who visited Smyths Toy Store  today and met Charlie Austin for today's launch of EA Sport's FC24."

The club is also offering fans the chance to get their hands on an exclusive copy of the game signed by the whole squad.
