Top Leyton Orient striker Kevin Lisbie inspired football-mad pupils at a Snaresbrook school on Thursday.
The 34-year-old presented Forest School’s top team with their Fair Play Award from the Independent Schools’ Football Association.
The players were recognised for their conduct on and off the pitch, behaviour and sportsmanship.
Football captains were rewarded with a lunch with Lisbie before joining pupils from other years to bombard him with questions about his incredible career.
Hackney-born Lisbie has scored 16 goals in just 34 appearances for Orient this season and has been named the club’s Player of the Year as well as the players’ Player of the Year.
