Josh Williams starred for Orient as they eased past East Villa with a 5-1 win, John Murphy, Liam Bird and Gary McEvatt all contributing.
Secretary Ste Long told Off The Park: “First half was a test for us given we fielded new players.
The first half seen one of our new players John Murphy score an excellent goal to make it 1-0 followed by a set piece goal by East Villa.
“Once the second half was underway the guys knew exactly what was needed – they all upped it a level, fitness and possession come into force and we went onto completely control the game and score another four goals.
“One goal in particular seen the core defence of East Villa get sat down along with their keeper and Josh Williams walked the goal in.”
Their opponents this Saturday, BRNESC, come into the clash on the back of a heavy win of their own.
Man of the match Charley Waugh shone as helped his side to three points with Niall Dawson scoring his first goal for the club and Tom Aylmer completing the scoring.
Manager Brandon Groves told Off The Park: “Bernie Mays came to Jeffrey Humble to make it difficult for us.
“They scored on the counter early on and sat back to frustrate us but luckily a beautiful strike from Charley Waugh got us level at half time or this could have been a bad day at the office.
“The lads started the second half strong and started to move the ball to our usual standards. We looked fit as we dominated the last half an hour scoring three goals. It was a good win and I’m delighted to see our hard work over pre-season has paid off.”
