This Saturday sees us welcome our friends from Leyton Orient for our fourth pre-season friendly with this being the second at The Aspect Arena as part of our upcoming preparations for the 2018/19 Vanarama National League South campaign.

We come into this game following a 2-0 defeat away at AFC Hornchurch on Tuesday night whilst Justin Edinburgh’s side come into this following a 4-0 victory over East Thurrock United on Tuesday night at Rookery Hill.

The O’s finished in 13th place in their 1st season in the National League with 60 points earned. The O’s fell at the second hurdle of the FA Cup with a 3-1 defeat at League 1 side Gillingham in the First Round Proper before losing 3-2 in the FA Trophy 4th Round Proper Replay at fellow National League side Gateshead.

Beachboys manager Sammy Moore used to play for the club before moving to us several years ago whilst defender Sean Clohessy played for the side during the 2015-16 season where he made 44 appearances for the O’s.

Admission for the game is set at £12 Adults, £7 Concessions and £3 Kids (12-16) and kick-off is at 3pm.

We wish all of our supporters and the travelling O’s supporters a safe trip to Thames Road as always and look forward to seeing many of you turning out to support Sammy Moore’s side in action for the second home game of the season.
