East Londoners faced non-league outfit last July and won 4-0 with Jay Simpson scoring twice

Leyton Orient will return to Woking again this summer to play the National League outfit in a pre-season friendly.

The O’s, still without a permanent manager, have confirmed they’ll be off to Kingfield Stadium on Tuesday July 19.

The clash will kick-off at 7.45pm and will see the League Two team go back to the non-league club for a second consecutive season.

Last summer, on July 28, then head coach Ian Hendon took his side to the Cards and watched them deliver a stunning first half display.
