PRE-SEASON PREVIEW | Charlton v Leyton Orient


The Addicks conclude their Spanish pre-season training camp on Friday with a friendly against Leyton Orient, live on CharltonTV (KO 10am BST).

Dean Holden's men have claimed victories against Welling United and Dartford in their first two outings of the summer and will be looking to maintain that record against the newly-promoted O's at Marbella's Banús Football Center.

The game will be 120 minutes long, split in to four 30-minute quarters, to give both sides an opportunity to get minutes in to players at this stage of pre-season.

The last meeting between the two sides came in the Papa Johns Trophy group stages back in November 2021. With both sides already through to the knockout stage, the Addicks sent a young side to east London and were beaten 1-0.

Richie Wellens’ side secured promotion last season in fine fashion, amassing 91 points and being crowned fourth-tier champions with three games remaining.

Orient head into the fixture having kicked off their pre-season preparations with a goalless draw against Isthmian League Premier Division side Billericay Town last weekend.

Charlton will debut their brand-new 2023/24 Castore third shirt in Spain on Friday. Click here to purchase your 2023/24 third kit.
