Leyton Orient defender Josh Doherty continues to impress on loan at National League North outfit Altrincham.

The Northern Ireland under-21 international played the full 90 minutes for the Robins on Saturday at Stalybridge Celtic.

Doherty was heavily involved in the away contest and the ex-Watford trainee played his part as Altrincham won 2-0.

It was their first clean sheet in the division and O’s youngster excelled at left-back and will hope to be involved this weekend when the Robins host Matlock Town in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Sammy Moore watched his Dover Athletic team-mates go down 4-2 at Gateshead in the National League. The Orient midfielder was introduced in the 90th minute, but the damage had already been done.

He will hope to get more minutes on Saturday in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup if allowed to play in the tie by his parent club.

If Moore can feature, he will most likely see a former team-mate. Dean Cox signed a deal with Crawley Town, although can’t feature for the League Two side until January and has been loaned out to Burgess Hill of the Ryman Premier.

Moore’s loan team, Dover, will visit Burgess Hill this weekend in the FA Cup and he could link up with the Orient legend.

Michael Clark played his part as East Thurrock got back to winning ways in the National League South after a lengthy break from competitive action.

The O’s central defender played the full 90 minutes for the Rocks at Court Place Farm as they claimed a 1-0 win at Oxford City.

Next up for East Thurrock and Clark is a league encounter at home to struggling Weston-super-Mare at Rookery Hill.

Freddy Moncur’s 28-day loan spell at Wingate & Finchley has ended and he has returned back to Brisbane Road.

The 20-year-old was present last Saturday to watch Orient lose 1-0 at home to Portsmouth in League Two.

After an impressive period with Ryman Premier Wingate, Moncur will hope for an opportunity at O’s now under new boss Alberto Cavasin, especially with several problems in the centre of midfield.

Meanwhile talented teenagers Myles Judd and Victor Adeboyejo failed to feature for Hasting United over the past week.

Sam Roach has been busy, however, for Barkingside as the Essex Senior League club played twice during the last seven days.

Orient’s young goalkeeper helped Side beat Waltham Forest 3-1 on Saturday before they lost 4-2 at FC Romania yesterday (Wednesday).

Roach is set to feature again for Barkingside this weekend when they host Southend Manor and once more when they visit local rivals Redbridge next Tuesday.

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.
