Some light relief

On the pitch at Brisbane road 13th May
On the pitch at Brisbane road 13th May

I took some time off from the trials and tribulations of the build to return to my roots. As a 10 year old my grandfather and father took me to watch Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road in the then 2nd division. This year they had a stellar season and ended up 3rd in what is now League 1 (old 3rd division). They qualified for the play-offs and had to play 6th place Peterborough home and away. Tuesday night, I and some friends went to see the return leg and watched them thrash Peterborough 2-1 and go through to the play-off final at Wembley on 25th May – the winner of that match gaining promotion┬áto the Championship (old 2nd division). A great night and at the end the fans flooded on to the pitch to acclaim the team. We used it as a short cut to get to the Tommy Johnston bar for a celebratory pint!
