The club are pleased to confirm defender Myles Judd and midfielder Henry Ochieng are the latest Academy prospects to sign professional terms with the O’s.

Judd and Ochieng have penned two-year deals with the O’s following their good form over the course of the season, and follow hot on the heels of Josh Koroma, Steven Alzate and Tristan Abrahams of the under-18 squad to sign professional contracts.

Judd has recently made his full first-team debut when starting against Exeter City on November 22 and followed that with his second start at Doncaster four days later.

Ochieng, also a second year scholar, made his debut last month coming on as a substitute in the O’s Checkatrade Trophy encounter at Brighton & Hove Albion.

The duo have been key figures in the under-18s fine start to the season in which they have remained unbeaten and progressed to the third round of the FA Youth Cup where they will take on Leicester City on December 14.


Reaction on the deals from Judd and Ochieng will be available on over the next few days.
