An ever-present ever since his debut, Brill equalled Orient's record clean sheet tally last season with 24 in all competitions.

Now he will look to help O's adapt to life in League Two quickly and cope after the shock death of boss Justin Edinburgh.

On the contract extension, interim head coach Ross Embleton told the official club website: "He's been a phenomenal player for the club and a top character off the pitch. The quality he portrayed at key intervals last season was integral in us achieving what we wanted."

Brill, who has missed a large part of pre-season with a shoulder and back issue, is set to be 100 per cent fit for Saturday's league opener.
