Justin Edinburgh’s team face a tricky away clash in the last-16 of the competition

Leyton Orient have been drawn away to Dover Athletic in the third round of the FA Trophy with the tie set to be played on February 3.

The O’s reached the last-16 of the competition with a 2-1 extra-time win at Bognor Regis Town on Saturday.

Goals from Macauley Bonne and Josh Koroma saw Justin Edinburgh’s men through and their reward is a clash against their National League rivals.

It will be a tough match for Orient with Dover flying high in the table and currently in seventh position.

The two clubs did battle at Brisbane Road on November 18 and a goal from Craig Clay earned O’s a point.

Orient will now renew acquaintances with the Whites, who have Connor Essam in their squad, on February 3 and the game will be the first of two between the clubs in the space of a month.

After visiting the Crabble Athletic Ground next month, the east Londoners will go back there on March 3 for a National League contest.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
