June 3rd
Fourth Division Play-off Final
Second leg
Leyton Orient 2 Wrexham 1
Harvey 43, Cooper 78

(First leg: Wrexham 0 Leyton Orient 0)
Orient win 2-1 on aggregate.

Paul Heald
Kev Dickenson (Ward)~Terry Howard~Keith Day ~John Sitton~
Kevin Hales~
Steve Baker – Lee Harvey~Steve Castle~Alan Comfort~
Mark Cooper

I’m trying to work out the formation from that team, at first glance it looks like SIX defenders!! Maybe one of Howard or Hales played in midfield. And only one out and out centre-forward in Cooper??
(Cooper recently returned to the Brisbane Road playing surface for the LOFT v Ear charity match which ended 1-1)
I read elsewhere that Alan Hull was on the bench…
Dig out some more stats and some photo’s on this soon…
