Orient’s Myles Judd is in the running to win the LFE Apprentice of the Year Award for League Two.
The 18-year-old has enjoyed a strong season both with the under-18s, being part of the side which made it through to the third round of the FA Youth Cup, as well as breaking into the first team.
The defender made his league debut for the O’s this season in the 1-0 home defeat to Exeter City and has made 21 first-team appearances to date and to top it all off, the youngster also signed a two-year professional deal earlier in the season.
Judd is up against Plymouth Argyle’s Alex Fletcher and Cambridge United’s Leon Davies in League Two and the winner will be announced at the EFL Awards night on April 9 at London’s The Hilton on Park Lane.
Shaun Harvey, EFL Chief Executive, said: “It’s been an exciting and action-packed 12 months for the EFL both on and off the pitch. There have been some incredible individual and team performances across the three divisions, entertaining the millions of fans who follow the EFL week in, week out.
“Off the pitch our clubs continue to have a positive and lasting impact in their local communities, using the power of football to deliver life-changing programmes and activities.
“The EFL Awards are a fantastic way to recognise the achievements of clubs, players, back room staff and fans and I would like to personally congratulate everyone who has been nominated and wish them all the best on the night itself.”
