Orient had the chance to test themselves against Premiership opposition in the form of a pre-season friendly against West Ham. The result was an excellent 1-1 draw with superb goals scored by Dean Ashton and Andy Boyd.
Orient actually played pretty well too and gave us something to hope for for the new season. There was some good passing and the starting eleven were pretty good at least. Being a friendly there were about a dozen substitutions on each side but the result is certainly a good one.
Apart from most of the players being different, the main change this season is that the team dugouts have moved to the West Stand, which means we’re a lot closer to them. The shot below shows Ann with Alan Curbishley in the background.
