Supporters Direct has been at the forefront recently of opposition to the FA's proposal to institute a League 3 for B teams of Premier League clubs.
Leyton Orient fans have played their part too, with a prominent banner on display at the front of the Tommy Johnston Stand for the O's play-off semi-final match the other day. The passion and noise generated at that game by both Orient and Peterborough fans were a timely reminder that the pyramid structure in English football is precious and should be protected against such patently ludicrous ideas.
If the FA commission that dreamt up this idea thinks that (with all due respect to both clubs) Hull City B team vs Stoke City B team would have even a tenth of the meaning of any of the League or Conference play-off matches, they are frankly deluded.
Whatever division Orient plays in next season, we urge the club to continue its opposition to this plan.
