access_time 11 months ago

Leyton Orient Football Club are extremely saddened to hear of the passing of club matchday employee and O’s fan Brian Church.

A passionate supporter of the club, Brian (pictured left) was a well known figure amongst O’s fans having dedicated over 20 years service as a programme seller positioned outside the West Stand and could then always be spotted post kick-off walking pitch side to assist latecomers with programme sales.

Always cheery, Brian was a loyal, dependable and extremely popular colleague amongst fellow sellers and will be much missed by all.

Brian was admitted to Homerton Hospital on New Year’s Eve and was in contact with the club earlier this week commenting on how much he was looking forward to returning to E10 as soon as the pandemic protocols allowed.

So it comes with deep shock and incredible sadness to learn of his tragic news and our thoughts go to his wife Lesley and the Church family at this difficult time.

RIP Brian.
