Leyton Orient are faced with an away tie at Plymouth Argyle in the First Round of the Carabao Cup.

The O's will face their fellow League Two side in the week commencing August 12.

The last time they were in the competition occurred back in the 2016/17 campaign, when they welcomed Fulham to Brisbane Road in the first round in front of a crowd of 3,855 spectators.

You may also want to watch:

Championship outfit the Cottagers were three goals ahead by the 54th minute, but two late goals by Paul McCallum made it an interesting finale.

Fulham also gave a 16-year-old Ryan Sessegnon his professional debut that night.

O's fans wanting to attend the first round will face a 450-mile round trip to the south-west of England.

And they will certainly hope for a better performance in the competition this time under newly appointed manager Ross Embleton against a Plymouth Argyle side which was relegated from League One last season.

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.
