The squad were joined by Director of Women’s Football, Derwent Jaconelli and Director of Football, Martin Ling – who co-hosted the evening in E10.
“The team have worked very hard throughout the season, in what has been an incredibly challenging year for us all,” said Derwent. “They have continued to develop as a team and as people.
They’re a credit to the Club, and it is my hope that one or two of them will be able command a place in our Women’s first team.”
Martin Ling was delighted to see the girls’ positive reaction to the evening and is looking forward to the future.
“It was really nice to see the squad in and around the surroundings of Leyton Orient and to show them what the future could look like. The future for them is to earn a right to get into that first team squad.
There will be games played at The Breyer Group Stadium, which is good. It was nice to see the reaction from the team – they were excited and taking selfies. To see that was a really positive thing.”
