McFly stars Dougie and Harry meet their Marlborough fans

The Scopia family from Devizes met Harry and Dougie at the event

Pop fans turned out in their droves in Marlborough on Monday to meet Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter from McFly.

The duo made a personal appearance at record shop, Sound Knowledge, to promote the band's new album, Above the Noise.

One of the first people to meet Harry and Dougie was Edward Scopia, 11, and his family from Devizes.

And Edward even managed to get a pair of drumsticks from Harry.

"I've got thousands of posters on my wall," Edward said excitedly.

"I'll use the drum sticks I got given. I'm very happy."

20-year-old Julie Soyer - who has already met the quartet five times - travelled from Portsmouth to get her album signed.

"They are my favourite band," she said.

"All my friends like them. I am a hardcore fan. I'm a big, big, big fan! I have been for seven years."

And Dougie and Harry told the waiting media how important it was to meet their supporters.

"I'm very happy to be here in Marlborough," Dougie said.

"It's really important to do signings like this," continued Harry.

"We are so conscious of always staying in contact with our fans. It's great to come and see them and stay in touch with them all.

"Hopefully we'll be doing this forever."

In the past, Irish rockers Ash and London acoustic duo Turin Brakes have met fans at Sound Knowledge in Marlborough.

However, shop manager Roger Mortimer said that McFly were "probably the biggest band we'll ever have had through the door".
