Leyton Orient Stadium Move Rumour Quashed

1012_orient.jpg Redbridge Council have denied reports from last weekend that League One strugglers Leyton Orient are set to move to a new ground in Fairlop Waters. The Sun had reported on "secret talks" between club and council, but a spokesperson has refuted the suggestion that the location on the borough's outskirts would become a new home for the O's; however, she did let slip that Redbridge in general is being considered as a destination for the club. Orient are keen to move from their limiting Brisbane Road home, and the chairman has proposed selling the ground. They have been linked with a permanent move to the Olympic stadium after the Games, though the suitability of a 25,000- seater stadium with a running track for a small but fiercely proud local club has been questioned.
