Ian Hendon has called young midfielder back from his loan at Welling United

Leyton Orient head coach Ian Hendon revealed he would be making changes after Saturday’s defeat to Accrington Stanley and one of the first is to bring Harry Lee back to the club.

The midfielder has been on-loan at National League outfit Welling United since the middle of August.

He moved to the Wings on an initial one-month deal, which was extended in September until January 9 with a recall option agreed between the two teams.

And Hendon has decided to do just that and bring the 20-year-old back to Brisbane Road now that he is fully match fit after suffering an injury during pre-season.

Lee has enjoyed a large degree of success with Welling and, after making his debut off the bench against Macclesfield on August 15, has gone on to make 16 starts for the club.

The Orient academy graduate didn’t feature for the Wings in their FA Cup campaign and therefore is available for the O’s on Saturday when they host Ryman Premier outfit Staines Town in the first round of the competition at Brisbane Road.

Hendon is believed to hold the midfielder in high regard and has previous praised his versatility as well as his attitude.

Lee featured at left-back during the summer and could provide cover in that area if required, but he’ll hope to impress in training this week and get an opportunity this weekend in midfield.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
