The first team this year is currently playing against other professional Premier and Football League clubs including Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Birmingham City, Fulham, Oxford United, Bournemouth and Portsmouth plus playing on training ground and academy pitches.

The Development Teams are trained and led by Leyton Orient FC Academy and Trust coaches and therefore have a strong link with the professional club.

Ex-Performance Squad player Sandro Semedo is currently a first team professional at the club and was involved in O’s last three matches of the past League Two season.
