NEWS: Statement from Nathan Clarke

access_time 6 years ago

Firstly I would like to start by saying how proud I have been, being captain of this football club, I have played with the best group of lads in my time here and made some true friends and some great memories!

In my time here I have had unbelievable support from the fans and I hope they could see I gave everything for the team.

This is why this decision has not been easy, but for the past 3 years while playing here, I have been away from my young family, my wife and 2 girls have been so supportive in this time, but I feel living apart has become too hard! I have on many occasions put the club before my families happiness and that should never happen.

I have made the decision to leave and move back north to be at home with my family.

I would like to thank everyone associated with Leyton Orient and I will always be a fan!

I would also like to thank the Manager for understanding my reasons and supporting me.

I hope everyone understands my reasons and I  wish the club every success in the up-coming season.
