As part of Leyton Orient’s ‘Laurie Cunningham Day’, a minute’s applause will take place prior to kick-off this Saturday in memory of late England winger.
On the 39th anniversary of Cunningham’s Leyton Orient debut, the Nubian Jak Community Trust will be unveiling a commemorative Blue Plaque in his honour ahead of kick-off.
The plaque will be placed on the site of the old Leyton Orient Supporters Club on Brisbane Road and will be unveiled by the Cunningham family at a special ceremony at 12pm.
ITV have also provided a copy of the documentary ‘First Among Equals: The Laurie Cunningham Story’, which will be shown on the screens around the ground shortly before 2pm. Finally, former team-mates will be speaking and remembering Laurie on the pitch at half-time.
