Product description

From the Author

Thanks to my father, I enjoyed privileged access to all his
surviving team-mates, whose personal stories and memories provide a
compelling insight into the workings of what was once a leading London
football club.

From the Inside Flap

LEYTON ORIENT have only made it to what is now known as the
English Premiership once in their 125-year history . . . and this is the
untold story of how they joined the elite in 1962-63.
From a disappointing 19th place finish in the old second division in May
1961, the O's were promoted with Liverpool a year later.
As well as looking back at the matches, the goals and the highs and lows of
that rollercoaster two-year period in the early 60s, The Untold Story goes
much deeper.
We catch up with most of the surviving members of those historic Orient
teams to find out what really happened behind the scenes, as well as on the
pitch. We examine the characters in the dressing room, the showbiz element
surrounding the little East London club in those heady days . . . and what
happened after the party ended and relegation cast the O's back down to the
lower divisions again.
Controversial, hard-hitting, candid and revealing, this is the most
definitive account you will ever read on the best-ever Leyton Orient team,
lavishly illustrated with great pictures that will have you pining for a
return to the `good, ol' days' and a time when Leyton Orient made it into
the big-time...
