It has been a memorable couple of days for Leyton Orient’s young midfielder Freddy Moncur after moving to Wingate & Finchley on loan recently.
The 20-year-old has joined the Ryman Premier on an inital 28-day loan and was thrust straight into the starting XI on Saturday at Worthing.
Moncur, the son of former West Ham United midfielder John, scored in the 83rd minute before adding another as the north Londoners won 4-1.
He was also in action for Wingate last night in the first round of the Ryman League Cup at division rivals Harrow Borough.

Sammy Moore also left Orient on loan recently and has forced himself into the Dover Athletic team.

Young goalkeeper Sam Roach has been between the sticks for Essex Senior League outfit Barkingside recently.
He made his second appearance for Side at the weekend during their 2-1 win at Basildon United and will hope to get more minutes tonight when they visit Wadham Lodge.

Meanwhile O’s revealed yesterday left-back Josh Doherty had joined National League North side Altrincham on a month’s loan.
