Leyton Orient is pleased to announce that Cash Converters have signed a two-year deal to take exclusive naming rights of the Tommy Johnston Stand.
The South Stand was originally renamed after legendary O’s forward Tommy Johnston in 2007 and Cash Converters, with local links and O’s fans in their leadership team, have always been adamant that the O’s Hall of Fame member would continue to be commemorated in the stand’s name.
The iconic stand, home to some of Orient’s most passionate fans and with a capacity of 1336, will now be known as the Cash Converters Tommy Johnston Stand.
Cash Converters, with local branches in Leyton, Walthamstow, Stratford and into Essex, offer buying, selling and loan services against most items of value, with knowledgeable and friendly staff in their branches all across the UK.
Pa Lette, Commercial Sales Executive at Leyton Orient, said: “We are thrilled that Cash Converters have chosen to sponsor the Tommy Johnston Stand.
