News has gone from bad to worse for Leyton Orient after Companies House issued a First Gazette notice for a compulsory strike-off. 

The club, owned by Italian Francesco Becchetti, have yet to file their accounts, which were due on March 31. They are now nearly three months late.

The document will be available to view in five days on the Gazette website and this adds to the O's faithful's worry about what will become of their beloved club.

Due to the non-filling of the annual return and not submitting the necessary documentation, according to the register, the company is now defunct.

The company will be removed from the official Companies House register unless any objections are forthcoming and the Gazette will give the O's a three-month notice of that intent.
