The O’s youngsters have found out their opponents for the first round fixture of the FA Youth Cup after AFC Hornchurch beat Bedfont Sports 1-0 in the third qualifying round last night.
The Urchins got the only goal of the game through Solomon Ogunwomujo in the 57th minute causing them to be Orient’s next opponent.
The date for this fixture is yet to be decided but will be available in the near future.
If the O’s manage to beat Hornchurch they will they will play either Luton Town or Colchester United in the second round of the Cup.
Orient will hope that if they get Colchester there won’t be a repeat of the result in the same Cup last year which saw the U’s beat the O’s 3-1 in the first round, with the tie to be played by November 21.
If the young O’s manage to beat either Colchester or Luton they will be in the third round of the Cup and the draw will be available at www.thefa.com by 1pm on November 13.
