Manchester City star John Stones and an England legend surprised a crowd of 300 homeless football players taking part in a charity tournament.

Blues hero Stones was mobbed by starstruck fans as he and former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton met those taking part in the Salvation Army's Partnership Trophy at the GOALS Manchester football centre in Cheetham Hill.

The tournament works with Pep Guardiola's Spanish charity, the Guardiola Sala Foundation, to bring vulnerable people from across the country together for a day of football.
