SEVEN members of Orient’s 1969/70 Division Three title-winning team returned to Brisbane Road last Saturday for the O’s game against Coventry City.

The east Londoners were celebrating the achievements of the legendary O’s side, which began an unbroken spell of 12 years in the second tier with their promotion.

The returning players were presented to the crowd at half time having enjoyed a pre-match lunch and were also present post match in the Supporters’ Club.

Captain of that team Terry Mancini was joined on the day by Peter Allen, Peter Brabrook, Dickie Plume, Mick Jones, Mark Lazarus, Steve Bowtell and the club’s commercial manager at the time, Brian Blower.

Club photographer Simon O’Connor was on hand to take these images.
