Leyton Orient have announced the signing of 24-year-old right-back Jake Caprice on a two-year contract. Caprice was a free agent after leaving National League side Woking. The O’s are rumoured to have beaten two other clubs to Caprice’s signature, including Dover Athletic.

Jake began his career with Crystal Palace, progressing through the club’s youth system. He secured a pro-contract in 2011, however, he was released by the club a year later.
In the summer of 2012 Caprice joined Blackpool, but he was soon loaned out to Dagenham & Redbridge. He made his senior debut with the Daggers in December 2012 as a substitute against Torquay United and went on to make seven more appearances for the club.
During the 2013/14 season, the right-back had loan spells with Scottish Premiership outfit St Mirren and he ended the campaign on loan in the Conference with Tamworth.
In 2014, Price left Blackpool without having made a senior appearance for the Tangerines. Lincoln City signed him up on a one-year deal in August. Caprice had to battle Tom Miller for the right-back spot in the Imps starting line-up. His sole season at Sincil Bank saw Jake make 38 appearances for the Conference Premier side.
In June 2015, Jake made the move to Woking and managed 45 appearances in his first season with the club. As a result he was rewarded with a new one-year contract with the Cards. Last term, Caprice continued to feature regularly, racking up another 44 appearances.

Jake is the fourth new arrival of the summer as the O’s continue to bolster their squad ahead of the new campaign. Caprice is set to be challenging Myles Judd for a starting spot at right-back during the new season.
