Leyton Orient's new chairman Nigel Travis is 'delighted and excited' to own the club he has supported since he was a young boy.

Travis will head a consortium named Eagle Investment 2017 Ltd with Marshall Taylor taking charge as the Interim Chief Executive. 

The Dunkin' Brands CEO told the East London Guardian Series he, along with Kent Teague, have three goals for the E10 club.

He said: "The first goal was to get the club. The second is to build it back up and the third is to move it forward in any way we can.

"We have been meeting every morning at 5:30am American time seven days a week for 10 weeks. 

"We are delighted and it is an exciting time."

This evening he will be spending a couple of hours celebrating the good news but from tomorrow firmly has his sights on preparing for the upcoming 2017/18 National League season.

"The National League season is not far away," he continued. "We will be making a football announcement tomorrow and there will be a few other announcements made over the next few days.

"We want the fans to buy season tickets for the new season and try to get others to buy them too."

And when speaking about his new business partner, Teague, he had nothing but high praise for the man from Dallas.

"Kent has been looking at buying a football team for some time. He is heavily invested in Orient and the success of the club.

"He knows all about Orient's history and tradition and we want to make the club approachable.

"I run a business of 2000 franchises and we have to be open with people and we have to keep looking forward.

"I want to ask the fans not to look at the past but to keep looking forward."

Travis also left one last message for the O's faithful: "Up the Os."
