Leyton Orient legends John Mackie, Kevin Lisbie and Gary Alexander will all be player-managing a team of O's fans in a mini three-team tournament on Monday, May, 11.

More than 45 fans will have the opportunity to live a day in the life of a player by getting ready in the changing rooms, running out of the tunnel and playing a full scale 11-a-side match on the pitch.

The O's legendary trio, after playing alongside fans, will then be on hand for an intimate Q&A and drinks session following the mini tournament.

Places start from just £125 including a personalised kit, dressing room access, post-match awards ceremony, the Q&A, professional photography, and video highlights from the day.

"If you've ever dreamt of playing on the hallowed Brisbane Road turf alongside club legends then sign up for the event," said a club statement.

Spectators can also buy tickets on the door (cash only) and the first match is set to start at 7pm with the last game finishing around 10.15pm.
