Popular midfielder has agreed a switch to his old club having only made one match day squad for O’s this season

Leyton Orient have allowed midfielder Sammy Moore to return to former club Dover Athletic on loan.

The 28-year-old has only featured in one match day squad this season, but was an unused substitute during the 3-2 defeat to Fulham in the English Football League Cup.

Nevertheless, with Nigel Atangana picking up a shin problem last night against Stevenage, Moore could have found himself involved at Grimsby Town on Saturday.

But Andy Hessenthaler has allowed the versatile and popular player to depart Brisbane Road until January.

While at the present time he finds himself fourth choice behind Robbie Weir, Liam Kelly and Atangana, the midfielder would have backed himself to take his opportunity when presented to him.

Now he’s completed a switch to the Whites, he will hope to play regularly and keep up his fitness levels. Moore also faced Dover in a pre-season friendly this summer and lives in close proximity to the ground.

After signing for O’s last season following his release by Wimbledon, he quickly established his place in Orient’s starting XI.

But a burst blood capsule behind the knee forced Moore to miss two months of the campaign.

He featured in most of the pre-season fixtures under Hessenthaler, but will now link up with the National League outfit.
