Former Charlton midfielder becomes first signing of the Francesco Becchetti eraEX-CHARLTON ATHLETIC midfielder Bradley Pritchard has today (Thursday) signed for Orient on a two-year contract following his departure from the Addicks.
The Zimbabwean 28-year-old is Russell Slade's second signing of the summer following the arrival of goalkeeper Adam Legzdins last month.
Pritchard made 17 appearances in the Championship last season and left Charlton earlier this summer after a three-year spell at the Addicks during which time he made 89 appearances and scored four goals.
Renowned for his tireless work rate, Pritchard was originally one of the performance analysts at the Valley whilst pursuing a non-league career, before winning a trial and signing full-time as a player and helping the Addicks to promotion from League 1 in his first season with the club.
