The East London derby[1] is a football match that takes place between two of either Dagenham & Redbridge, Leyton Orient and West Ham United. This derby rarely takes place because, as is the case with the Dockers Derby, the clubs are usually in different leagues.

The last time West Ham United and Leyton Orient shared a competitive meeting was on 31 January 1987 in the FA Cup which West Ham won 4-1 with their goals coming from McAvennie, Cottee, Keen and Parris.[2] Dagenham and Orient have not played each other since the 2011-12 season. In their last meeting, on 7 September 2011 in the Football League Trophy, Dagenham won 14-13 on penalties after the game had finished 1-1.[3][4]
