Leyton Orient have signed Frazer Shaw on a one-year deal. The 20 year-old left-back had featured for the O’s as a trialist throughout pre-season and he has clearly done enough to convince Ian Hendon to offer him a contract.
The O’s had been without a recognised left back since the departures of Gary Sawyer and Andrea Dossena earlier this summer.
The player revealed the news on his twitter account before the club made the announcement, but Shaw soon deleted his tweet.

Shaw started out at Arsenal but he was released at the age of 14. He then joined West Ham and he featured regularly for the Under-18s, the Development Squad and the Premier league Under 21s Elite League alongside Blair Turgott.

Following his release from West Ham in May 2014 he signed for Isthmian League Premier Division side Billericy Town. However, Shaw was released in September 2014.
He went on to join Dulwich Hamlet and he made 39 appearances for the Division Isthmian League Premier Division side.
In May 2015 Shaw was called up to the England C squad to face the Republic of Ireland Under 21s. He played a full 90 minutes in the 2-1 victory on the 1st June.
Shaw is the sixth new addition of the summer, following the arrivals of Ollie Palmer, Sammy Moore, Sean Clohessy, Paul McCallum and Blair Turgott.
