Ian Hendon will take his team to Malaga for pre-season training camp

Leyton Orient’s pre-season campaign will see them fly to Malaga, Alhaurin el Grande for a training camp in July where they will play in two friendly matches.

Ian Hendon will take his team to face Braintree Town on Friday July 10 before they fly to Spain on Tuesday July 14.

They will return on Monday July 20 but will be facing Championship side Huddersfield Town in a pre-season clash on July 18 in Malaga, whilst also playing another side, yet to be decided.

O’s were always expected to be touring Europe this summer after non-league club Bishop’s Stortford revealed the news last month in a statement that falsely claimed they were hosting Orient in a pre-season match.

That was only a provisional date and Stortford have since been replaced in the Brisbane Road clubs friendly schedule by Woking.

It now means Hendon’s side have five pre-season games to prepare for, although the fifth team and when that match will be played has yet to be confirmed but it will take place during their trip to Spain.
