“I grew up within walking distance of the ground and have supported Leyton Orient since I was four years old,” said Olivia upon her appointment.
“To this day I still attend games with my Dad who has been a big influence on me, so when the opportunity came up for me to take up the role as Female Development Officer, it was simply not one I could ever turn down!”
“Having started playing football as a young girl here at Leyton Orient, I have been playing Women’s senior football for almost 20 years. I have seen the game grow massively in that time and I am excited to be able to play my part in its growth here at Leyton Orient, and to see how far we can take it.”
“It is a privilege to wear our red shirt, and for our Women to have the opportunity to walk play on the pitch of this famous stadium, is something that I am extremely proud to be a part of.”
“It’s an exciting time for women and girl’s football here at Leyton Orient, and the support given to us by the board has been amazing!”
“Everything we are doing right now feels like a real progression, and I hope we can inspire the fans to come and support us, and in doing so, help us to inspire the next generation of young women to play football.”
