Leyton Orient: Club Profile
As far as Leyton Orient are concerned, it all started for us with our famous FA Cup Round Two win at theirs in December 1996. And that’s despite the ref’s failure to send off Peter Shilton that day. Of course, fixtures between us and the Os became more common after our promotion to the Football League. There was a little break in relations when they saw the sights of non-league football for themselves.
On their return in summer 2019, the Os were rocked by sad news; boss Justin Edinburgh passing away. But they did him proud in their first season back in League Two; a resilient campaign laying the foundations for moving upwards in the seasons to come.

Players For Us... and Them
Leyton Orient Ground Information
Away Fans’ Stand
Facilities for Disabled Fans
If driving to Leyton Orient, there are limited parking facilities available. It’s possible for the club to allocate three dedicated spaces – and these are available by contacting the listed contact, Lindsey Martin. You can do this by email or by calling 0208 926 1111.
On local streets, there are marked bays available on a first-come, first-served basis too.
Fans with a disability or impairment are admitted at the appropriate paying rate. For fans using a wheelchair or with an ambulant disability, however, carers can come with you for free. Tickets should be booked in advance.
In the East Stand, there are up to 22 spaces for wheelchair users and for carers. But this is only for when the entire stand is taken up by travelling supporters. If segregation is the order of the day (and, with us, it’s likely to be), the number of spaces falls to seven.
One of the nearest pubs to the ground is the Coach and Horses, which is around 0.5 miles away. If coming by tube, the pub is accessible by turning right out of the station and is approximately 10 minutes walk.
There is a Supporters Club at the ground that does admit small numbers of visiting supporters at a cost of £1. The supporters club which is located in the new West Stand is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. As you would expect it is very popular with fans. However it is a relatively small club (around a 200 capacity), so if you don’t arrive there early, then you may find that it is already full. For some bigger fixtures, the Club puts together a small Fan Zone area across the road from the Supporters Club at the Score Leisure Centre which contains a licensed bar.
Otherwise, the nearest pub to the ground is the Coach & Horses on Leyton High Road, but this is now for home supporters only. Further along, the High Road towards Leyton Tube Station is the Leyton Technical pub. Housed in the old Leyton Town Hall, it is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and has up to eight real ales on offer as well as real ciders. It also serves food. There are also plenty of fast food outlets dotted along the High Road.
Leyton Orient Travel Information – Distance: 33 miles
Located in the east end of London, this trip first involves heading south on the A1(M) to join the clockwise M25. Come off at Junction 24, taking the fourth exit at the roundabout for the A111. Keep going on this road until you’re in New Southgate, before turning right onto Osidge Lane (B1453).
Facing the Osidge Arms pub on a roundabout, take the first exit for Hampton Way. Go straight over the next two roundabouts, before taking the first exit at the third to go left onto Wilmer Way (B1452). Just a short toot onwards, it’s a right onto Powys Lane.
As the road snakes round to the right, bear left onto Broomfield Lane and go across one roundabout onto Oakthorpe Road. This comes past Palmers Green Mosque; shortly after which you’ll be turning onto the A406 North Circular. Stay on here for about 5.5 miles, before coming off for the A104.
At this junction, take the third exit on the roundabout for the A104 and stay on this road. When you get to Knotts Green, bear left for Leyton Green Road (B159); taking this into Leyton. Go left to stay on the B159 in a third of a mile, before turning left onto the A112. After nearly a mile, take a right (Windsor Road) and then left for Brisbane Road.
No parking is available at the ground, which isn’t exactly uncommon. As a residential area, the temptation is to park on-street. And there are some spaces to find. But these are really limited in number. In all fairness, the car is not a great option for the Os away.

The walk from Leyton tube station is a short one and won’t take you very long at all. Head north on High Road Leyton/A112 and turn left onto Osborne Road after around 0.2 miles.
