Evening Town Fans.
I'm an Essex based O's fan browsing your board tonight saw this thread and wanted to wish you luck for the season, well for 44 of the 46 games anyway .
I watched you at Braintree on the opening day of the season and thought you looked a well drilled outfit and it was great to see our ex skipper Nathan Clarke playing well and scoring. I have watched quite a few Halifax/O's games down the years and I think our clubs are very similar in lots of ways smallish clubs with a loyal fan base and hopefully we'll both be back in the football league sooner rather than later.
Saturday should be a tight game and I reckon there will be a solitary goal in it either way, I would expect at least 500 visiting fans as Halifax is a favourite trip for a lot of us, friendly fans and a good day out, although sadly I can't attend this one.
As for Mickey Bullock he was at the O's for a Gala dinner at the end of last season looking well after a bout of ill health, a real favourite at the O's and possibly as good a header of a football I have ever seen.
