O's and Seasider fans join forces in protest march

Leyton Orient fans joined forced with Blackpool supporters before the match in a joint protest march against owners Francesco Becchetti and Owen Oyston.

Oyston’s son, Karl, has been chairman of the seaside club since 1999 and has a poor relationship with the fans due to the lack of funding given when they reached the Premier League. 

However, the protest was not just to show their frustration with their current owners it was also to air their issues with the governing bodies.

Orient have had a turbulent couple of months after being handed a winding-up petition from HMRC at the beginning of March.

It still remains unclear what future plans the Italian has for the east London club.

However, it appears most of the debt has been paid.

This protest was the latest in a long line for the O’s faithful after staging two pitch invasions at Brisbane Road at their last two home games.
