I've added a Flickr link to some photos of Clapton Orient's old stadium just off the Lea Bridge Road.

Before playing here they were based in the Millfields area and also had a short stint at Wembley.

There is no mention of a Charlie Vogel in the complete record of Leyton (and Clapton) Orient book published the other year (Breedon Books)

My husbands Grandfather says his father played for Clapton Orient and we are desperate to find a picture of him to give him as he hasnt got any of his father. his name was William Thomas Beckinsdale he changed his surname to veal so it ma be under William Thoms Veal. Look forward to hearing from you with any information.

My father tells me that my Grandfather played for Clapton Orient maybe around the 1920's. His name was William Frederick Hamilton. Any information on my grandfather would be appreciated. Thank you!

Nobody called Hamilton is listed in Orient FC - A Pictorial History by Kaufmann and Ravenhill having played in the League. I guess not all players made it into the first team.

Can you please find a picture of my Late father in law who played for Clapton Orient Fc either late 1940's or early 1950's. His name was John Cecil Beacon. DoB 1st February 1926. a picture would fill the gap in his life i am missing. Thanks in advance Richard

I have a similar query but pre 1914. I am looking for William Hunter who played for ECFC 1914 but I believe he moved there from Clapton.
However, can I offer a bit of advise to all the others who have put in requests for info. One of my relatives played for Bolton - who say they have no record. I have found a couple of newspaper articles with his name showing he played for them. Have a look in the local newspaper sports pages and you might find your man. Hope this helps. Alison

Mrs I A Ward

Brian Jenkins

Could anyone have any details on a player called Harry Jenkins who played just before the secon world way and also played at Leyton Orient when they moved.I also believe that his good friend Stan Smith also played for them.

Paul

My late Nan, told me her brothers played...

Hi I am trying to find my great uncle's picture I was told he played for Clapton Orient his name was Jack Barr please can you tell me where I can find pics he played after WW1

Brian Jenkins

Following up on my previous message on July 4th 2013 I understand my father Harry Jenkins played for the reserves as a right winger he mentioned he had made his first appearance at Fratton Park and scored his first goal at Wimbledon if anyone give me any information would be obliged.

Neilson Kaufman

Hi Wendy Phillips

Your request for info on a Jack BARR playing for Clapton Orient. I do have a JOHN Barr listed playing for Clapton Orient first team, but afraid no pictures of him as he was mostly a reserve player with a few first team appearances.
