BT Sport have already revealed they are to show Leyton Orient’s first ever venture into the fifth tier of English football when they travel to Gander Green Lane to take on one of last season’s Emirates FA Cup heroes, Sutton United on Saturday, August 5th, kicking-off at 12.30pm.
Next it’s the team who followed the O’s down from League Two, Hartlepool United, when Craig Harrison’s new-look side travel south to the Matchroom Stadium on Saturday, September 16th, again with a 12.30pm kick-off.
Orient feature again on BT Sport early in the 2017/18 season as they travel to last season’s Promotion Finalists Tranmere Rovers on Wednesday, October 4th, with a 7.45pm kick-off.
Three days later on Saturday, October 7th, the live BT Sport cameras are at the Racecourse Ground for Wrexham’s game against Eastleigh with a later kick-off time of 5.30pm.
Both sides have made wholesale changes to their squads in an effort to improve on last season when they finished 13th and 15th respectively.
