List of Leyton Orient F.C. seasons

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of all the seasons played by Leyton Orient Football Club in English football. The club was formed in 1881 as Glyn Cricket Club, and started a football section named Orient Football Club in 1888. Friendly matches were played against local sides until the club was elected into the Clapton & District League for the 1893–94 season.[1]

Leyton Orient is the second oldest football club in London, behind Fulham, and was elected to The Football League for the 1905–06 season. The club has undergone a number of name changes during its history: from Orient to Clapton Orient in 1898; to Leyton Orient in 1946; a reversion to Orient in 1966, then a return to the Leyton Orient name in 1987. The club has reached the top flight of English football once in its history, a single season in Division One in 1962–63 which ended in relegation. Leyton Orient's best performance in the FA Cup was in reaching the semi-final stage in 1977–78.[1]

This list includes the abandoned 1939–40 season and the unofficial Second World War leagues.
