The O’s under-18s maintained their 100 per cent pre-season record with a solid 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

A stunning strike from Sam Alderson and another cool finish from Victor Adeboyejo – his third in as many pre-season games – put Orient on course for victory against the Addicks.

Tristan Abrahams added a third, and on the performance Academy Director Andy Edwards told leytonorient.com: “The performance was good defensively, especially when we were out of possession.

“We took a few of our chances, though we could have scored one or two more. While we are on a good run we still have to work on a number of areas in training, and we definitely have to improve our retention of the ball as well as trying not to force play too much at times.”

The under-18s will continue their preparation for the new season this week when they host West Ham United on Wednesday.
