Pre-season friendly: Gateshead 0 Leyton Orient 0

Leyton Orient had to settle for a goalless draw in their pre-season friendly at Conference Premier side Gateshead.

New signing Shane Lowry came in for his debut at centre back, while on the bench was German defender Ayo Okosun, who spent last season playing for Danish Division One side AB.

The first half was a rather uneventful one, though Kevin Lisbie headed wide from Dean Cox’s centre.

Lowry’s debut only lasted 43 minutes as he was taken off as a precaution.

After the break the chances started to come as Cox tested home goalkeeper Scott Bartlett, before Elliot Omozusi went close when volleying David Mooney’s cross, but Bartlett produced a fine save to keep the game goalless.

Shaun Batt tried to curl one in but Bartlett was again equal to the effort, while Marvin Bartley was denied as he reacted quickest to Cox’s free-kick hitting the post.

Mooney and Chris Dagnall combined for the former to go close, while Orient’s sub goalkeeper Gary Woods was called into action late on to deny Rob Ramshaw.

That proved to be the last action of the match, and Russell Slade’s side now head to League Two side Northampton Town on Saturday.

Leyton Orient first half: Legzdins, Omozusi, Sawyer, Vincelot, Baudry, Cox, James, Lisbie, Mooney, Lowry, Pritchard.

Second half: Woods, James, Baudry, Clarke, Omozusi (Lee 71), Batt, Vincelot (Okosun 60), Bartley, Cox (Smith 79), Dagnall, Mooney

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
