The O’s under-18s began their pre-season schedule with a solid 4-2 win over Birmingham City.

Freddy Moncur netted a brace, while Victor Adeboyejo (pictured) and Josh Koroma were also on target in the victory.

Academy Director Andy Edwards was pleased with the opening performance of the pre-season campaign, but admitted there could have taken more of their chances in front of goal.

“It was a very good performance from the team and we created a number of other opportunities which we were unable to take advantage of,” Edwards told leytonorient.com

“We were 3-0 up and it could have been a few more, but it was very positive opening and there are areas where we can improve.”

Danny Webb’s under-16s also came up against Birmingham at the weekend, and emerged as 3-1 victors to complete a good opening weekend for the O’s youth setup.
