Non-league Leyton Orient might be a far cry from lifting the Premier League trophy themselves, but youngsters were able to get up close and personal with it during a visit to the ground.

Pupils from Malmesbury Primary School in Bow joined their peers from three Waltham Forest schools to tour the club’s Brisbane Road ground before being surprised with a chance to view the prestigious trophy.

The visit was part of the Premier League Primary Stars programme, which is delivered in the schools by the Leyton Orient Trust and aims to use football to engage children in education.

The pupils also took part in a lesson about resilience, writing their own poems about not giving up.

Phill Smith, head of health and wellbeing at Leyton Orient Trust, said: “We have been so proud to host the Premier League trophy at Leyton Orient to give students a unique experience that will hopefully inspire them in the classroom.”
