RIP Bill Measure

8 November 2015

Leyton Orient are saddened to hear of the passing of supporter Bill Measure

Bill, along with wife Maureen, have been Orient supporters for over 50 years, and they both rose to prominence when pictured by Jo Tongue on the pitch hand in hand following the O's League One Play-Off Semi-Final second leg win against Peterborough United on May 13, 2014.

The photo spread like wildfire and TalkSPORT presenter Colin Murray sought to track them down and they joined him by  phone on the show, which can be heard here.

Fans and players have reacted to the sad news on social media, with Dean Cox saying: "Sad to hear Bill Measure has passed away this picture will live long in his and orients memory #RIP #LOFC"

Jo Tongue added: "#RIP my best ever pitch invader (and poss my fave football pic I've taken) @leytonorientfc Bill Measure"

The Club send their condolences to Bill and Maureen's family at this very sad time.
