Justin Edinburgh’s team have been handed a tricky opener against one of the favourites for promotion

Leyton Orient face a tough start to the 2018/19 National League season with a trip to division new boys Salford City up first on August 4.

The Greater Manchester club appointed ex-Fleetwood Town boss Graham Alexander as their manager this summer and are owned by the likes of Gary and Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.

After visiting Moor Lane, the O’s will host Ebbsfleet United at Brisbane Road on August 7 – a match which will see former loan pair Jack Payne and Ebou Adams come back to E10.

Over Christmas, Orient will visit Dagenham & Redbridge on Boxing Day and host them on January 1 and end at home to Braintree Town (April 27).
