Leyton Orient goalkeeper Sam Sargeant has agreed a new deal to keep him at the club until the summer of 2022.

The 22-year-old has come through the O's academy and featured fairly regularly this season after a couple of injuries to Dean Brill as well as his eventual retirement from football to become one of the club's coaches.

He has made 17 appearances for the club this season, with 12 of those coming in League Two.

On signing his new deal, Sargeant told the club website:  “I’m delighted to get it over the line. I’ve been at this Club for a number of years and for them to put that trust in me and offer me a new two-year contract is something I am over the moon with!

"I try my hardest in training and in games, it’s nice for the Club to see that i have done enough to get this new deal. I’m looking forward to continuing the hard work for this team for another two years.”

He continued: “I like being able to help younger keepers. We’ve all been there, trying to make your way through and it’s not always easy. I’ve experienced a lot in my very short career, that I think a lot of people wouldn’t, highs and lows.

"I feel I can really inspire people coming through the academy, who in a few years, could be sat where I am now.”
