Meet Orient's Most Famous Pitch Invaders: Bill & Maureen!

15 May 2014

The couple behind the photo that everyone was talking about...

After the fans poured onto the pitch on Tuesday evening following the final whistle, there were unbridled scenes of joys within the Matchroom Stadium. 

People took to social media to share their photos from such a memorable occasion but one particular photo caught the eye when Jo Tongue (@Tonguetweets) tweeted the photo above with the caption 'Best pitch invaders I've ever met.'

The photo spread like wildfire and yesterday morning, TalkSPORT presenter Colin Murray sought to track them down. The pair turned out to be Bill and Maureen Measure and they joined him by phone on the show which can be heard here.

The pair have agreed to go back on the show ahead of the Wembley trip, whilst TalkSPORT have decided to buy Bill and Maureen tickets for the final and the club will be arranging for them to meet the players ahead of the big day.
