The Leyton Orient Women’s football team (LOWFC) were special guests of the club at the game versus Accrington Stanley last month, being hosted in the new East stand Fans For Diversity Community Hub as well as well as being the pre-match flag bearers and guard of honour.
The women, as yet undefeated in their own league this season, inspired their male counterparts onto a much needed win and have therefore declared themselves available for the rest of the season!
Team manager Chris Brayford said, “We are delighted to be here today and the ladies are very excited to walk the flags and be the guard of honour. We love our association with the club and it has really inspired us to go on and be the best we can. Our aim is to win our league and gain promotion and we welcome supporters at all our home games taking place at the Mile End Stadium on Sunday’s. Oh, and it’s free!”
Only a couple of reverse results against Tottenham Hotspur in two cup competition have blighted their copy book so far but that has only made the ladies more determined.
Vice Captain Lydia Cooper said, “We’re a tight knit group now, most of us having played together for about three years, and we know we have the potential to play at a higher level. The two games against Spurs proved that with very narrow defeats and considering they are two leagues higher than us. We’re determined to win the league and gain promotion and hopefully we can come back again and parade our trophy next time!”
That would be our pleasure!
Games recommence for the Ladies on Sunday January 29 where they face a top-of-the-table clash against rival Crawley Wasps LFC at home at Mile End Stadium with a 2pm kick-off. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
