Geraint Williams first pre season in charge of Leyton Orient saw a number of trialists given the chance to impress, although none of them were taken on in the end. It also saw a mixed bag of results and many goals being scored. With seven games, we won 3 drew 2 and lost 3, scoring 16 and conceding 12. The wins were against Billericay, Kildare and Newcastle United, draws with Bishop Stortford and Hayes & Yeading, and losing to St Albans, Ebbsfleet and Dagenham & Redbridge.
