Leyton Orient will begin their 2017/18 National League campaign with a trip to Sutton United on Saturday, August 5.

The O’s will play their first home fixture against Solihull Moors on Tuesday, August 8, then will also host Maidstone on Saturday, August 12.

The East London side will then face two local trips the following week, where they could come against familar faces in former O’s Alan Dunne and George Porter on Tuesday, August 15, as they face Bromley, before heading to Woking on August, 18.

Orient will then welcome the return of striker Paul McCallum to Brisbane Road as they play against Eastleigh on August 26, before they visit Maidenhead United on bank holiday Monday, while they visit Barrow on October 7 on what is this season’s ‘Non-League Day’.

The club will play two big rivalry matches during the Christmas period as they host Dagenham & Redbridge on Boxing Day and the return fixture will take place at Victoria Road on New Years Day.

While, they will also host London rivals Bromley on December, 30 to complete their festive fixtures.

The Easter break will see Orient travel to Guiseley on Good Friday and host Maidenhead on Easter Monday.

Their last home match will be against Wrexham on April 21, with their last away day being the long haul to Gateshead on April 28.
