Leyton Orient have announced that Aron Pollock and Sam Sargeant have signed two-year professional contracts with the League Two club.

Pollock, 18, shone last weekend on his debut against Mansfield Town and was given the man of the match award as a result.

He was a second-year scholar with the O’s youth side, but has now penned a deal to remain at Brisbane Road until the summer of 2018.

Sargeant has been involved with the first team in recent weeks and went to the England Men’s Goalkeeper Training Camp last month.
