Three of the special commemorative Leyton Orient fourth shirts worn during Saturday’s 3-1 win over Bromley are now up for auction here.

The signed Avec shirts for goalscorers Jobi McAnuff, Josh Koroma and Macauley Bonne are the first to be available. Bids start at £75 and the auction will last for one week.

As announced previously, the money raised will be split between the Royal British Legion and erecting a permanent gravestone at the rest place of legendary Orient captain, and the first footballer to sign-up for the Footballers’ Battalion in World War I, Fred Parker. He was the first player to reach 300 appearances for the O’s and left the Club having played 336 times. Fred currently lies in an unmarked grave in New Southgate.

Details of additional opportunities to bid / win signed commemorative Leyton Orient fourth shirts will be made available in due course.
