RECENT signing James Scowcroft opened his goal account for the O's as they drew 1-1 in Tuesday night's pre-season friendly at Blue Square Premier side Hayes & Yeading.

The home side took a 25th-minute lead through Danny Allen-Page, but former Crystal Palace striker Scowcroft equalised nine minutes later when Ryan Jarvis crossed from the right and home goalkeeper Simon Overland could only touch the ball to the O's striker, who netted from close range.

Orient should have won the game eight minutes from time when Jarvis was upended in the box.

Jarvis took the kick himself, but Overland tipped his effort around the post.
