Orient were our main divisional rivals...could only dream of playing Palace let alone doing the double over them then schooling them at Selhurst on a December evening in front of the Sky Sports cameras
I remember playing there on Boxing Day 2000 - it was absolutely freezing, one of my coldest ever days at football (and yes, we won 1-0, OGH scored)
NSC's Barnet Seagull wearing his bright yellow fleece on the terraces was a particular highpoint. As was the Mitre Inn beforehand.
I remember that photo of Barntit Seaweed.
I wasn't there but was it OGH ? In the back of my mind it was a canter half who only played a couple of games.
Didn't I once see Martin Chivers score for us with a towering header at Brisbane Road?
Memorable for the day that got me signed up for NSC. I was sceptical about NSC but I met Wozza in the queue to get into Orient and he persuaded me that NSC had got rid of the nutters and I should register. I'm not sure that was quite true but I'm still here 23 years later
