Jake Larkins has agreed a one-year deal with Leyton Orient. The 19 year-old goalkeeper came through the ranks at West Ham, but he was released by the Hammers at the end of the 2012/13 campaign and he will now join the O’s from 1st July. Larkins did not manage a first team appearance for West Ham, but he was an unused substitute as a 16 year-old in the Premier League match at Blackburn Rovers in December 2010.
Last season he played 9 games in the Under 21 Premier League. He was also sent out on loan during 2012. He made 4 first team appearances during a loan spell with Grays Athletic and he also featured for Billericay Town.
