Legzdins Departs


Adam Legzdins has left Leyton Orient after the player and the club reached a mutual agreement to terminate his contract.

The 28 year-old goalkeeper joined the O’s last summer on a two-year deal following his release from Derby County. He began last season as Orient’s first choice ‘keeper but he suffered a fractured finger in September. Legzdins returned in November but he then sustained a dislocated shoulder on Boxing Day which kept him out of action for the rest of the season.

Legzdins made just 13 appearances for Orient last season, in which he kept three clean sheets. His contract was due to expire at the end of next season, but he will leave the club this summer.

Adam took to Twitter to thank Orient fans for their support and he revealed that the decision for him to leave the club was made before the arrival of new O’s boss Ian Hendon.


Gary Woods is the most senior goalkeeper remaining at the club. Charlie Grainger is regarded to be a very promising talent for the future, while Sam Sargent gained some experience being on the first team bench last season.

However, Hendon may be looking to bring in another goalkeeper, possibly to add some experience in that position.
