Former O's heroes in attendance on Saturday for book launch!
FORMER O’s favourites Peter Kitchen, Carl Griffiths and Terry McDonald will be at Saturday’s home game against Rotherham signing copies of the brilliant new hardback book, Leyton Orient: Brisbane Road Memories.
Around 200 supporters contributed their personal memories for the book, which is edited and published by Tony McDonald (Terry’s son). Along with Kitch, Griff and Terry and Mac, there are also new interviews with their fellow ex-O’s Mickey Bullock, Phil Hoadley and Matt Lockwood, plus Orient chairmen past and present in Barry Hearn and Brian Winston, who makes some surprise revelations about previous events at the club.
There are also chapters on: First visit, popular players, greatest goals, stadium views, terrace characters, match day rituals, collectables, programmes, autographs, kits, publications, etc.
Lavishly produced in full colour throughout and containing many rare and previously unseen photos, this 372-page volume can be bought by O’s fans for £20 – a fiver off the RRP and Amazon’s price.
The various signing sessions will take place at the following times and places:
Leyton Orient Supporters’ Club 12.30pm – 2.00pm
Olympic Suite 2.00pm – 5.00pm
The Gallery 5.00pm – 5.30pm
Leyton Orient Supporters’ Club 5.30pm – 6.30pm
