Winger Semedo, a former member of the youth team set up at Benfica, Portugal,  featured on 13 occasions for the youth team last season scoring four goals, while also featuring in several Development League fixtures over the course of the 2014-15 campaign.

And during those appearances the youngster has impressed the O’s coaching staff, and in return has signed a two-year professional deal with the O’s.

Also staying on for another season is midfielder Harry Lee, who has signed a new one-year contract at the Matchroom Stadium.

On top of that Montel Agyemang, Freddy Moncur, Jack Humphrey, Sam Ling and Scott Kashket are all under contract with the O’s for the upcoming 2015-16 season.

 Academy Director Andy Edwards told “It’s really positive for the Academy to have these players involved with the first team, joining the likes of Harry Lee and Charlie Grainger who have come through the system at the club.

“It is a good opportunity for the players to come in and impress the new first-team management team.”
