Have your say

Some of us can remember the first time we watched our team play, but not many have a record of the look on our faces.

This young lad does though and it's a magical picture.

Sheffield Wednesday fan Sam Stevenson posted a video to Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal on twitter after taking her son to Hillsborough for the first time, for the pre-season friendly against Port Vale.

Sam tweeted: "First time @ Hillsborough his reaction says it all! Good job he's got a season ticket I think!"

In the video, after walking up the steps and into the stand, Sam's husband, Chris, had his lad's face covered until he reached the point where he could see the pitch, just as the players were preparing for kick off.

And the reaction is superb!

The message has already been retweeted many times, including Carlos Carvalhal himself, who wrote "The future of SWFC" and Owls fans have been loving it.

Replying, @s26kel wrote: "This melts my heart! Welcome to your new big family little boy."

"Just brilliant you should keep that video forever," wrote @talk_swfc, while @Hardwick1867 added: "Love this, we're all Wednesday x"
