Ryan Dickson, Jake Gray and Otis Khan joined Way in visiting the 19-year-old, after learning of his allegiance to the Green and Whites.
Spending time with Rhys after training, the quartet pledged to try and pick up three points on Saturday to put a smile on the Town fan’s face this weekend.
“Rhys is an incredibly brave person and someone we’re all really humbled to have met and spent some time with,” Way said after meeting the youngster.
“We told him that his fighting spirit is exactly what we’re looking for in our team and that hopefully, we can get a win for him this weekend.
“If all goes to plan, we hope Rhys can have a smile on his face on Saturday night – he’ll certainly be in our thoughts.”
