The Club is delighted to confirm that we will be hosting Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur in pre-season.

The two sides will compete for the JE3 Trophy, in honour of ex-O’s manager and ex-Spurs player, Justin Edinburgh.

The Tottenham Hotspur first team will travel to The Breyer Group Stadium on Saturday 17th July for a 3pm kick-off.

The Club is also pleased to confirm that there will be a 2,000 stadium capacity for this match, in line with guidance from local authorities and Public Health England. No away fans will be permitted to watch the match inside the stadium.

Our 2021/22 Season Card Holders will be given priority access to purchase one match ticket per Season Card. 2021/22 Season Card Holders will be able to apply for tickets for groups of up to 6 Season Card Holders via an online ballot. More information regarding the ballot will be released in the coming days.

Ticket prices for our Season Card Holders will be £12 for adults and £7 for U18s. No hospitality packages will be available for this clash, or the game with West Ham United on Tue 13th July.

“It shows the continued support from both clubs to the great work that we’re doing.”

Ticket details for our pre-season fixture against Gillingham on Saturday 31st July will be announced closer to the fixture.

CEO, Danny Macklin, is delighted to be able to support JE3 Foundation: “It is fantastic that two clubs that Justin represented are able to come together to support JE3. Last year’s match was special; we hope this one can be even better.”

JE3 has recently launched a new website and donated three new life-saving PADs to Southend United, AFC Rushden & Diamonds and Mavericks RFC.

Justin’s son and founder of the foundation, Charlie Edinburgh, said: “First and foremost, as a family, the fact that two clubs that meant so much to Justin and us as a family, are coming together to put on a spectacle for supporters is incredible.”

“It’s very overwhelming and very humbling that both clubs want to come together to remember Dad with a friendly, with a percentage of the proceeds raised going to the JE3 Foundation, which is an amazing touch. It shows the continued support from both clubs to the great work that we’re doing.”

Following the launch of JE3’s brand new website, Charlie is keen for supporters to check it out and show their support: “For us the last year, like it has for most, has really impacted the things we have been doing and prevented us being able to do some of the great work we have wanted to do.”

“We’ve been working hard on our new website; we would encourage people to take time out to head over and have a look at the exciting bits we have going on and coming up. It’s a great way for people to find out more about the Foundation’s work moving forward.”
