2010/11 FA Cup Draw 1st Round later today – Sunday 24th October 2010

The FA Cup Trophy at Wembley Stadium

Orient's going to Wembley?

What will the cup hold for us this year?

The last decade has seen 3rd round wins at Portsmouth and Fulham and 1st round defeats at Margate.

A Cup run is certainly important for the balance sheet, ands also for the confidence and morale of the players. Check out the blog or twitter later on for details of our first round opponents.

Two in, One out for Orient ahead of Huddersfield game

James Walker is back!!
He was last seen in an Orient shirt scoring the final goal in stoppage time of the amazing 5-2 at Millwall, and last seen at Brisbane Road scoring in stoppage time of while Kevin Nugent was caretaker manager (inbetween Ling and Geraint Williams).

Andy Frampton has come in from Millwall on loan to solve the left back problem, while Adrian Patulea has gone out on loan to Hayes & Yeading… (found his level?)
If Walker comes on as sub tomorrow, I’d recommend not leaving early to beat the traffic…

With Ryan Jarvis, the hat-trick hero of that Tuesday night 5-2 win at Millwall also back at Orient for his second spell, we only need to re-sign Gary Alexander (who left Millwall to join Brentford at the start of the season) to reunite all the goalscorers of that incredible night…
