Leyton Orient U18s will get the second half of their season underway on Saturday when they travel to Gillingham.
The young O’s narrowly missed out on a top half finish in the South East Conference as they ended the campaign in 8th and as a result will take part in the Merit League Division 2.
The new League sees teams from the bottom half of the South East and South West Conference merge together and will provide new opposition for Andy Edwards’ side in the form of Cheltenham Town, Bristol Rovers, Newport County and Torquay United.
