Green Shoots Appear For New Look Leyton Orient

It's certainly not been an easy summer for anyone at Leyton Orient but their new manager Steve Davis can certainly see the green shoots of recovery.

Off the field issues may have grabbed the headlines but the Vanarama National League's newcomers look to be on the right path.

Davis was appointed last Monday and has this week been busy putting his squad together after relegation from Sky Bet League Two.

The new boss was overwhelmed by the support shown to him and his players in their first game at Bostik League club Harlow.

He thanked the fans and the 6-1 win demonstrated that Orient may have a part to play at the top end of the league next season.

“It was a good occasion and nice to see so many fans come and support the team and support everyone involved at the football club,” said Davis to the East London Advertiser.

“It looks like they are going to be behind us from what I have seen today and I think the game was a good work-out and we have got to play games on this surface, so from that point of view it was good.

“It is a little step forward and we have still got a lot of work to do.

"I have only taken the team for a couple of training sessions, but I am happy with where they are at the moment.”
