Leyton Orient’s Scott Cuthbert spoke of his pride after he was named the club’s Player of the Year at the weekend.

The O’s held their Star Man awards dinner at the Prince Regent Hotel in Chigwell on Saturday, with Cuthbert taking the top honour after an impressive debut campaign for the club.

His season might have been cut short by a hamstring injury suffered during the defeat to Charlton Athletic in March but his performances prior to that saw him claim the accolade.

“From a team’s point of view it has been a disappointing season but it has been a good one for me personally,” Cuthbert explained.

“I was absolutely delighted. It was a really proud moment for me. To win it in a squad among the likes of Kevin Lisbie and Matthew Spring is great.”

The 24-year-old joined the O’s last summer from Swindon Town and was a regular in Russell Slade’s starting XI during the campaign, scoring one goal.

And the defender is looking to enjoy life higher up the League One table next season.

He added: “As long as the team is having a good season then I will be having a good one too.

“We have got to put this season behind us, especially at home. We have got to put that right and I think we will do.”

Also picking up an award on the night was goalkeeper Lee Butcher, who was named the club’s Young Player of the Year.

Like Cuthbert, the 23-year-old’s season was cut short by injury but he produced a string of fine displays to be honoured at the ceremony.

Top-scorer Kevin Lisbie scooped the Players’ Player of the Year award and arguably could have been in line for the Goal of the Season prize until Moses Odubajo struck for the O’s in the final game of the season, meaning it was the 18-year-old who claimed that honour.

Rounding off the awards was Billy Lobjoit, who was named Youth Team Player of the Year.

Lobjoit struck 13 goals for the youth side in his 19 games and has been rewarded with his first professional contract as well as a first team debut.
