Boss assesses Crewe defeat as relegation confirmed

Manager Omer Riza expressed his disappointment at seeing relegation from League Two confirmed following the O's 3-0 defeat at Crewe Alexandra this afternoon.

First half goals from Callum Ainley, Ben Wintle and George Cooper condemned Orient to relegation from the English Football League, ending our proud 112-year association.

Whilst understandably disappointed, Riza admitted the better side won on the day and expressed his gratitude and sympathy to the O's supporters who have continued to stick by the side despite increasingly difficult circumstances.
