Leyton Orient have continued their plans for next season by tying down Dean Brill and Jobi McAnuff to long-term contracts.

Both moved to Brisbane Road in the summer with McAnuff agreeing a one-year deal and Brill coming on board as goalkeeper coach.

The former Luton Town custodian has since established himself as O’s number one and caught the eye between the sticks.

Brill has now signed a two-year contract with Orient and been rewarded for his fine form since December 2.

McAnuff, in his second stint with the east Londoners, has been a consistent performer since the beginning of the campaign.

He has agreed another one-year deal meaning both players are set to have a key role to play in the 2018/19 campaign.

After signing the likes of Josh Coulson, Marvin Ekpiteta, James Brophy, Sam Ling and Nathan Mavila in recent weeks, this is another sign Orient are planning for the future.
