Happe told leytonorient.com, “I am delighted to sign my new contract, I thought it was the right thing to do at my age and hopefully I can kick-on here.”

“This is a Club that means an awful lot to me, they gave me an opportunity at such a young age so I glad to be able to repay the faith by staying here. I have known Ross [Embleton] for a while now and I feel I have a good connection with him so I am looking forward to continuing to improve under him”
