Leyton Orient bought by consortium headed by Dunkin Donuts chief and life-long fan | London

Francesco Becchetti has sold Leyton Orient to a business consortium headed by Nigel Travis, a lifelong fan and chief executive of the Dunkin’ Brands Group.

Leyton Orient, who have been in free-fall ever since Italian Becchetti bought the club from Barry Hearn in 2014, saw their 112-year stay in the Football League come to an end when finishing bottom of Sky Bet League two last season.

Earlier this month, a winding-up petition against Leyton Orient was dismissed at a High Court hearing, with all debts having been repaid.

Nigel Travis, who was born in nearby Woodford, is confident Leyton Orient can now move forward as they aim to regain their Football League status.
