Barker, Scales and Pollock answered questions from the young people, took part in a cross-bar challenge, signed team photos and handed out medals for all 25 participants. The trio also presented two Player of the Day awards to George, 5 and Nojus, 10, for showing a great attitude throughout the session. Their prizes were an Orient rucksack and family tickets to a home game of their choice.
James Court, Lead Development Coach, Leyton Orient Trust said: “Thanks to Howard Gould for arranging for the players to come across to meet the children. They were buzzing to meet them. All the players were a credit to the Club.”
Howard Gould, Club Liaison Officer said: “For these players that have been playing football since a young age, especially Charley and Aron who have come through the O’s academy, it’s great to arrange visits like this as they can relate to the youngsters, and provide inspiration.”
