The Zimbabwe international scored 25 goals in all competitions for the O’s last season following his summer move from Colchester United and opened his account for the 2018/19 season on Saturday with a brace against Barrow AFC and extends his stay in E10 until 2020.
The forward told leytonorient.com, “I’ve had the summer to sit down and talk to my family about it, and the right decision is to extend… It’s the feeling of being loved and wanted somewhere. It is the right decision to stay here and try and continue my performances this season.”
Head Coach Justin Edinburgh said, “I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve secured Macauley for an extra year. First and foremost, I want to thank the Chairman Nigel Travis and the Board for resisting what were some serious offers for him through the summer.
“We were transparent with Macca and we told him we wanted to keep him and that he had unfinished business at the Club and what has been refreshing has been his attitude, which has been first class and that has shown in his performances this season. I look forward to working with him into 2020.”
