The O’s under-18s skipper Charley Barker has been recognised for his achievements on and off the pitch by the League Football Education (LFE).

Barker featured for the O’s on five occasions before experiencing a pars stress fracture in the lower back, which is expected to keep him out for several months.

But his achievements have not got unnoticed and on selecting Barker for the south-east nomination, Regional Officer Gavin Willacy said: “Charley has made a good start to the new season and is well on track to complete his apprenticeship with good academic grades. On the pitch he continues to lead and set an example for others to follow.”
