A number of O’s players are spending the early part of the season out on loan, and here is a round-up of how they fared this weekend.
Sammy Moore – Dover Athletic v Barrow – National League Premier
Midfielder Sammy Moore was an unused substitute as Dover Athletic picked up their third league win in succession, and now sees them in fourth spot in the table ahead of their trip to Torquay United on Saturday.
Michael Clark – East Thurrock United v Gosport Borough – National League South
Defender Clark was part of the Rocks squad which picked up their second league win of the season with a 5-1 hammering of Gosport Borough to move up to 11th in the league table.
Clark remained on the pitch for the entire match as a double from Harry Honesty and one apiece for Joe Gardner, Joe Ellul and Michael Freiter.
They will be hoping to build on the emphatic win when they make the trip to ninth placed Bath City on Saturday.
Sam Alderson – Cambridge City v Hayes & Yeading United, Southern League Premier Division
Alderson played the full 90 minutes as Cambridge City drew 2-2 at home to Hayes & Yeading.
Lloyd Macklin put Hayes in front at the break, but the O’s youngster went close to levelling the game in the second period as his shot struck the bar.
The hosts struck back though, and within the space of seven second half minutes had turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead thanks to goals from Tunde Adewunmi and Erkan Okay.
However, as they looked like picking up all three points, Hayes struck deep into second half stoppage time when substitute Dylan Kearney netted.
On Alderson’s performance City boss Dan Gleeson said: “Sam Alderson had a great game for us. He was unlucky when his shot hit the bar and he is a key member for the squad for us.”
Victor Adeboyejo – Dulwich Hamlet v Leiston – Ryman Premier
Adeboyejo came off the bench for new loan club Dulwich Hamlet as they suffered a 4-2 home defeat to a Leiston side who maintained their 100 per cent start to the league season.
The 18-year-old replaced Ibrahim Kargbo with 10 minutes to go with the hosts already 4-2 down and could do little to reverse the outcome.
Dulwich will have a chance to make amends for the defeat when they travel to Harlow Town tomorrow night.
