Shrewsbury Town captain Tamika Mkandawire and the versatile Ryan Woods proved popular guests to Shrewsbury Sixth Form College.
They paid a visit alongside Martin James, the club's head of community development, to take part in a question and answer session on racism and other equality and diversity issues in football.
The pair were fed questions by students David Parton and Bethany Vuckovic, two excellent ambassadors of the college.
"The players answered a range of specific questions about their experiences and views before opening up the questions to the floor on more personal questions about their lives as footballers," said Martin.
"It was a great pleasure to go and deliver community initiatives to college students. The experience they gained from talking to professional people such as footballers can only enhance their outlook on life."
Sixth Form lecturer Colette Rugman, who organised the visit, added: “It went well and the students enjoyed meeting Ryan, Tam and Martin.
"It certainly helps the students to gain an inside knowledge of how a professional footballer works day to day and their interaction with the community.”
