2017 - On 85 minutes (16:40) a pitch invasion by Leyton Orient fans who were protesting the ownership of Francesco Becchetti caused the play to be stopped. The protests continued until a PA announcement at 17:48 informed the crowd that the match had been 'cancelled'. Supporters left the ground peacefully, but it was ruse concocted to empty the stadium - the home fans asssuming their ultimate objective of the abandonment fixture had been achieved. The players then returned at 18:43 to play out the remaining 5 minutes plus injury time. Nothing happened in this as Orient players simply passed the ball around with no challenge/tackles from Colchester United players. The game finished at around 6:50pm
