Josh Koroma, Christian Scales and O’s interim chief executive Marshall Taylor were present at the Score Centre on Saturday

The Leyton Orient Trust officially launched their oral history project on Saturday with a re-enactment match of the first game O’s played in Leyton against Cardiff City.

LOT welcomed a team from the Cardiff City Foundation to the Score Centre on Saturday to play against their own Trust XI.

The match was played to mark the first ever O’s game at Brisbane Road on August 28 1937 – which was also against the Blues and saw the clash end 1-1.

LOT recreated the fixture, yet couldn’t stop the east Londoners triumphing 4-1 this time after an excellent display.

Before the game, first-team players Josh Koroma and Christian Scales met both of the squads and interim chief executive Marshall Taylor was also present.

Several members of the LOT including Neil Taylor, Howard Gould and Louise Stephens were also there on the day.

After the match, both sets of players acted as flag bearers for Orient’s National League contest with AFC Fylde.

It proved to be a successful day for all concerned and marks the start of the LOT oral history project.

This is the first of many events taking place over the next 12 months to celebrate and capture stories about Orient and the community.

If you are interested in helping LOT with this celebratory project then please contact: enquiries@leytonorienttrust.org.uk.
