Leyton Orient still pursuing groundshare with West Ham

League One Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn is still attempting to secure a groundshare with West Ham at the Olympic Stadium.

League One Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn is still attempting to secure a groundshare with West Ham at the Olympic Stadium.

A club statement read: "Orient would like to confirm that it has renewed its application for permission for a judicial review against the London Legacy Development Corporation in respect of their decision to deny the club Olympic Stadium tenancy.

"The club believe that in refusing permission, the judge erred in his decision on reviewing the papers, and we are therefore opting to debate the issues at an oral hearing where we are confident that permission will be granted."

Hearn argues the move, to within a mile and a half of Orient's Brisbane Road ground, will have an adverse effect on the League One club's attendances.
