💬 Pierce Sweeney on Orient and Trust celebrations

7 September 2023

Pierce Sweeney has given his thoughts as City prepare to take on Leyton Orient this weekend, as the club celebrates 20 Years of Supporter Ownership.

Sweeney has been a part of the furniture for several years at SJP and understands the Trust model better than perhaps any other player in the squad, and he has spoken about the occasion.

"It's a massive milestone for the club to celebrate where we have come from. We had a celebration of Eamonn last week and he played a big part in keeping this club alive," Sweeney said.

"It's been a nice week for the club to celebrate 20 years and I'm sure Saturday will be a good day all round. It's quite a coincidence we're sitting where we are now on the anniversary, and we wouldn't be where we are now without everyone that is involved."

Sweeney expects a tough encounter against a side City have played several times over the years, especially given Orient's difficult start to life in League One.

"They've had a tough start and after winning the league you expected them to hit the ground running, but they've probably found the league a lot more difficult, but look, we are at home and our aim is to win all of our home games and keep a decent home form."
