KELLY: 'The club is moving in the right direction'

2 July 2016

New O's midfielder keen to win things with the O's

New Leyton Orient midfielder Liam Kelly believes he has come to a club capable of winning things next season.

The 26-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the O’s for an undisclosed fee from League One Oldham Athletic, and though Kelly has dropped a division, he sees the potential the club have going forward.

“I wouldn’t have come here if there wasn’t any ambition,” Kelly told Orient PlayerHD.

“You don’t want to be at a football club that is struggling or sitting in mid table, you want to be achieving and winning things and when I look at the potential here, Leyton Orient is a club that should be getting promoted and targeting to win the league next season.”

When Kelly first heard of the potential interest from Orient, it was the ambition of the club which attracted him to the O’s.

“It’s going to be a new challenge for me,” he added.

“The thing that first drew me to the club when I got the call was the ambition. You just look at the players they have brought in already and the ambition of the owner.

“This club is moving in the right direction. They were not far off the play-offs last season and I think if you look at how they finished last season, winning the last couple of games, the potential is there to move up the league next season.”

For the full interview with Liam, sign up to Orient PlayerHD for as little as £4.49 a month.
