The O’s signed Connor Wood in June 2021, after leaving Bradford City with a reputation as one of the league’s best left-backs.
Connor started his career non-league and represented Soham Town Rangers and Chesham United before signing for Leicester City. Wood spent two years with the Foxes before making the switch to Bradford.
The full-back made over 100 outings for the Bantams, including 81 consecutive league games, before making his final appearance against Morecambe on the last day of the season.
“Connor gives us good balance,” said manager Kenny Jackett. “He’s a very natural left-back and very attacking. He’s someone I’ve followed since his Leicester days – we played against him quite a lot in the 23’s.
“Since then, he’s gone into League One and League Two and played 100 games for Bradford, which at 24, gives him very good experience.
“I think being a local lad, he has his best years ahead of him and I’m looking forward to bringing the best out of Connor in the coming seasons.”
