Those who sign up for the membership will be directly supporting the Academy for dedicated use on selected projects, equipment and general operation.
Current One of Our Own members will have the price of their membership dropped to £5 per month from £10 per month and will also be refunded the difference they have paid so far between their £10 per month subscription and the updated £5 per month subscription.
The membership includes a number of benefits as a thank-you for supporting the Academy…
Speaking of his experience coming through the Leyton Orient Academy, midfielder Hector Kyprianou said: “The Academy gave me the platform to enjoy football and progress to fulfil my dream to play for the first team. There is a line of academy players making to the first team and you know that if you work hard and you are good enough you will be given the opportunity”.
The COVID outbreak of 2020 has put tremendous strain on the Academy’s operations, which you can help to alleviate by becoming a ‘One of Our Own’ member for just £5 per month. 100% of the funds raised through the membership will directly contribute to the day-to-day running of the Academy to ensure we can continue to produce young stars to break into the first team and beyond.
Cyprus international, Kyprianou continues to explain how it felt when he made his first-team debut: “Of course making my professional debut was a dream come true. It’s an achievement and I was very proud but also very thankful to my coaches and my family for their support throughout my football career.
