‘Looks good’ – Many Leyton Orient fans react as 24-y/o impresses in friendly encounter



Leyton Orient’s preparations for the new season are progressing nicely as they aim to impress in their first campaign back in the Football League.

It’s been a tragic time for the O’s, losing manager Justin Edinburgh shortly after earning promotion and they’ll surely be fuelled by a desire to honour his memory with a solid season back in the Football League.

He led them to promotion after a two-year absence and now the baton has passed to Ross Embleton, who oversaw a 1-0 win against Hornchurch in their latest friendly.

Having lost striker Macaulay Bonne to Charlton, the responsibility for scoring goals has passed to new recruit Lee Angol. The former Peterborough and Mansfield man hit the only goal of the game last night, a fine strike just past the hour mark.

That had Orient fans taking to Twitter to offer their assessment of the quality finish, as well as examining Angol’s prospects for the season. Having floated between Luton, Mansfield, Peterborough, Shrewsbury and Lincoln in recent seasons, he needs a stable home and platform upon which to build.

If last night’s goal is anything to go by, once he’s given a chance of regular football, he’ll thrive, which seems to be the train of thought amongst O’s fans as well.
