Crystal Palace youngster discuss Kevin Nolan, Alan Pardew and his partnership with Sammy Moore and Jobi McAnuff

Jerome Binnom-Williams is enjoying life in League Two at Leyton Orient under player-manager Kevin Nolan.

The 21-year-old has consolidated his position at left-back after signing on loan from Crystal Palace last month.

And the talented youngster has made a positive impression since making his debut at Notts County on February 20.

On Saturday he was solid again for most of the game as O’s registered a fine 1-0 win at Oxford United.

Binnom-Williams is now hoping his loan at Brisbane Road can boost his chances at Selhurst Park next season.

He said: “It has been good under the gaffer, who is obviously an ex-Premier League footballer.

“I have watched him as I grew up and he is a great player, he is trying to bring that experience to us young boys and the rest of the team. Things are going really well and he’s a good manager.

“Alan Pardew didn’t really say much to me before the loan, he just said that under-21’s football isn’t really good for me and I need to play in the league.

“Hopefully if I do well, like every other young player going out on loan, I can go back and push to get in the first team so fingers crossed I can do that.”

The left-back has mainly had either Jobi McAnuff or Sammy Moore in front of him at left midfield in all of his five appearances.

He has enjoyed playing with both and discussed the relationship he is developing with the experienced pair.

“The partnership with Sammy and Jobi looks like it is going really well. I just go out there and do my job, and they do the same,” said Binnom-Williams.

“We work for each other, if either of them makes a mistake I get them out of danger and they do the same for me.

“If they do something good I encourage them and it is the same thing if I do something well so I’m enjoying it and can’t complain at all.”

Even though the Crystal Palace ace might have given away a penalty on Saturday for a challenge on Oxford’s Liam Sercombe, he has been impressive at the back.

His confidence appears to be growing with each passing game and not many wingers have got any joy against him.

If he can keep up his strong form, it will without doubt aid Orient’s chances of finishing in the top seven come May 7.
