The popular Play With A Legend event is returning to Brisbane Road this May with Leyton Orient fans having the chance to play with three heroes of the 2005/06 League Two promotion winning team.
Gary Alexander and John Mackie will once again be returning to captain two of the sides made up of fans, the third year they have done so, and they will be joined by a third ex-O’s player.
Orient legend Matt Lockwood will be involved this time around as a three-way tournament takes place under the Brisbane Road lights.
All the details for the event, which will take place on Thursday May 10, can be found by clicking here.
Tickets went on sale earlier this year and fans can sign up for 45 or 90 minutes of action on the pitch with prices starting at £125.
Readers of the East London Advertiser have been fortunate enough to receive a special discount code with Play With A Legend kindly allowing Orient fans to get a five per cent discount if they use the code ADVERTISER5 at the checkout online.
Supporters who play in the event at Brisbane Road will get a personalised kit to keep, dressing room access, bottled water/energy drinks and the post-match ceremony all included in the price.
A professional photographer will be on hand to capture the evening too and all prices include VAT.
Spectators will be able to buy tickets on the door (cash only) with arrival and registration at Brisbane Road for 6.30pm on May 10.
Play With A Legend director Josh Landy said: “We’re delighted to be heading back to Brisbane Road for the third year in a row, giving 45 Orient fans the chance to play on the pitch with club legends.
“Gary has been victorious in the last two years, but John is reportedly undergoing an intense fitness regime in order to be in peak condition for the event, whilst Matt is flying in from his home in Edinburgh hoping to lead a team of fans to glory!
“Places start at just £125, and we expect the event to once again be a complete sell out.”
