Clapton Orient trio inducted to Hall of Fame

access_time 1 month ago

Ahead of this weekend’s memorial fixture with Hartlepool United, the club can reveal that our heroic Clapton Orient trio have been inducted into the Hall Of Fame.

The Hall of Fame, which was revealed earlier this year, has paid tribute to The O’s greatest players across our history, as well as the late Justin Edinburgh.

Richard McFadden, George Scott, and William Jonas all lost their lives in the Battle of the Somme, and have been ingrained in the club’s history ever since.

Their wonderful contributions on the pitch were eclipsed only by their heroism in World War One, with a special tribute unveiled at the National Arboretum on Sunday.

As part of their recognition in the Hall of Fame, which will sit in the Legend’s Lounge in the future, the trio will feature on this Saturday’s matchday programme.

A special edition illustrated collector’s edition has been created, with the three of them paid homage. These will be available around the ground for £3.50.
