Forward is third player to leave Brisbane Road on loan recently

Scott Kashket has become the latest Leyton Orient youngster to depart the club on-loan this week.

The 20-year-old has joined National League outfit Welling United on a one month youth loan.

A statement on the Wings official club website read: “Scott goes into tomorrow’s squad vs Cheltenham Town at Park View Road subject to paperwork being completed.”

O’s player-manager Kevin Nolan revealed recently that he would be looking to get some of the younger members of his squad some regular game time.

“Should be good for me going out on loan to Welling. Excited to get a couple more games under my belt over the next couple of weeks,” Kashket said on Twitter.

The club also announced earlier today that defender Aron Pollock has moved to Ryman Premier side Wingate & Finchley on a work experience loan.

He has been on the bench twice for the first team this season and joins Freddy Moncur at the north London club.

Moncur scored during his debut on Monday against Kingstonian and both will hope to feature against Dulwich Hamlet tomorrow.
