Orient chairman Harry Byrne and Chief Executive Column Writer Mort Pinter acted under cover by opening a warehouse named “Eastenders” in Calais where they sold cheap booze, and English people flocked in their thousands to buy the bargains in January and August.

Loick Pires (brother of Robert)
Paul Thierry (brother of John Henry)
Stephane Purchase
Rianne Jarvis
Jerome Jones (gk)
Thierry Mkandawire
Jerome Ibehere
Jason Jean (JJ) Melligan
Sasha Opinell
Simone Church
Michel’ Simpson
