With Leyton Orient due in court next Monday (June 12), the part-time academy staff could all potentially be listed as creditors

Several part-time academy staff at Leyton Orient are still waiting to be paid their wages for May.

On Friday it was confirmed that O’s players and full-time staff had been paid their wages for May.

Some employees received it a day early (May 30) and others received their wages a day (June 1) later than usual.

But it has since emerged that numerous part-time academy staff at the Brisbane Road club have yet to receive what they are owed.

The part-time academy staff were paid late for both March and April and in some instances, they were paid less than they were due.
