Leyton Orient Fans Trust prove to be spot on
LOFT lift the Dale Jacobs Trophy again following a penalty shoot-out
The Leyton Orient Fans Trust football team won the Dale Jacobs Trophy for the fourth successive time on Saturday.
The annual charity match between LOFT and a Leyton Orientear fanzine team, added to the proceeds from an earlier sponsored walk to Charlton, should help raise around �10,000.
One of the organisers Joe Durston said: “We would like to thank all those that gave up their time, money, knowledge, skills and prized Orient possessions to help continue making this event a success.
“We would also like to thank Leyton Orient FC for the use of the facilities and also Cathy at The Birkbeck pub.

After a goalless first half, Carl Stanbury gave Orientear the lead against the run of play, but LOFT hit back to level through Mickey Bacon and once again penalties were needed.
But LOFT wrapped things up from the spot as Oli Button, Robert Scuffell and Dan Brissefer all found the target as they won the shoot-out 3-2, despite successful spot-kicks from Orientear duo Stanbury and Dan Oliver.
After the game there was an auction of Leyton Orient and sporting items, with a signed O’s shirt going for �200.
The evening concluded in the Birkbeck Tavern.
