Former Crystal Palace academy graduate agrees a return to London with National League club

Leyton Orient have announced the signing of former Cheltenham Town winger James Dayton.

The 28-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the National League club after impressing during a trial period at Brisbane Road.

Dayton has caught the eye during displays against Greenwich Borough, Hornchurch and Billericay Town and has now earned a contract at Orient.

The Londoner, who grew up in Enfield, was most recently with Cheltenham and helped them gain promotion from the National League in 2016.

Dayton scored twice in 22 appearances in the top flight of non-league football and found the net three more times last season.

But the winger was released at the end of the 2016/17 campaign and after a trial with St Johnstone’s, has now linked up with Orient.
