Speaking afterwards, Jamie said they had wanted to attend and to pay their respects on behalf of the club.

“We have been training with them for a couple of months and they were really nice guys,” he added.

“It’s a close club. We have only just joined but they are such nice guys down there.”

Brad said: “We were absolutely gutted to hear about it. We are devastated.”

He said he would remember them as gifted footballers, Matt as a good goalkeeper and Jacob as a very good centre half.
