Preseason Recap

A long, long preseason was in store

Season eight has begun. And to get prepared for another season in the top flight we'd need to be match fit and confident before we even set foot out on to the pitch for the first game of the season. Instead of me rambling on with the same things I say every year let's just look at the results.

Preseason Results

Yet again we can look back on our season's preparation with positivity. We collected wins in nearly all of our games and we managed to score a lot of goals in the process. In only our second game Pedro Monteiro managed to bag five of our six goals which really looked promising.

We were invited to a four team friendly cup, our most notable opponents being Sheffield Wednesday and Atletico Rafaela of England and Argentina respectively. We progressed through a long and tough shootout against the Owls before facing Atletico Rafaela in the final and easily beating them 3-0.

A 2-2 stalemate at Italian outfit Catania followed before we travelled to South Africa to play Patrick Kekana's former club SuperSport United as part of the transfer arrangement. We easily won 6-0 and Kekana managed to score himself.

A big win at Atalanta really lifted the confidence inside the changing room and another victory over an Italian side, this time Genoa, also helped us as we rounded up preseason. The final game was at home to Oliveirense and Sergio Liparoti, who scored his first ever Oriental goal here, gave us a 1-0 win.

Europa League Draw

We were drawn against Macedonian side Shkendija (I think that's how you spell it). In all fairness we should be able to get into the group stages - let's just hope we can put all doubt to bed and progress.

Marítimo is our first league opponent of the season and we'll be hoping for a win to kick off our season!
I may have taken up your pre-season friendly schedule Walt! Following your terrific example.
Lovely pre-season Walt!
great pre-season, must have been sweet for Kekana to score against his old club :D
Me very sorry for no commente, I'm still on holiday! (That goes to everyone's story I have been following!!)
Excellent pre-season and congrats on 900 replies :D

Leave it out Niko, it's not his fault their fans are shite.

Great pre-season mate ;)

You'll find that's just preseason ;)

Thanks for all the comments guys, updates may be a bit slow due to the internet but nonetheless I'll try and get them out.

Oriental Kit Numbers Announced

Oriental officially announced kit numbers today

The club can confirm the official squad numbers for the upcoming 2020/21 season. The most notable kit was number seven, which was given to footballing legend and veteran Cristiano Ronaldo. Here are the complete numbers for this season.


To Be Announced






Prices will range depending on size, customisation and player, but we'd encourage all Oriental fans to join in and buy a shirt to create a sea of maroon during home matches at the Estádio Eng. Carlos Salema this season.

Força Oriental!
JUST VOICING MY OPINION :P. But actually really like what you have done with the jerseys. Lets go Forca!
