The full-back’s previous terms with O’s were set to run out at the end of this season

Leyton Orient have started to plan for the future by agreeing a new two-and-a-half year deal with Myles Judd.

The right-back has been a favourite with the fans ever since he progressed into the first-team during the 2016/17 season.

While O’s had plenty of ups and downs during Judd’s breakthrough campaign, the defender always impressed with his whole-hearted displays.

He initially struggled under ex-head coach Steve Davis last season, but earned more opportunities once Justin Edinburgh arrived in November 2017.

The academy graduate is one of two former youth-teamers now vying for a position on the right-side of Orient’s back four with Sam Ling a direct rival.
