A winding-up petition against Leyton Orient has been dismissed at a High Court hearing in London today

Orient owed money to four creditors on the petition, having resolved unpaid taxes with HM Revenue & Customs.

The owner of Leyton Orient, Francesco Becchetti, was given until Monday to pay off all unpaid debts or sell the relegated League Two club following a previous hearing in High Court in March.

Those creditors on the petition have been paid, although it is understood other creditors remain.

Orient fans could be heard protesting against their owner outside High Court on Monday.

Manager of Orient, Omer Riza, is only contracted until 30 June and the club are struggling to hold onto their players and bring in new additions to their squad, leaving uncertainty surrounding the club on the pitch as well as off the pitch.
