One in for Slade - now he’s waiting on two more
Keeper Jamie Jones pledges his future to the club
Orient manager Russell Slade was given a boost when goalkeeper Jamie Jones committed his long-term future to the club by agreeing a new three-year deal.
The 22-year-old is the first of three out-of-contract players to make his mind up and he will pen a deal that will take him to 2014.
Jones admitted that he could have moved on and explained: “There were options elsewhere, but I decided between me and my family that the new contract here was what I wanted and I’m really happy to have committed my future to the club.
“I’m delighted to agree a new contract. It’s nice to be offered such a long-term deal and it shows what the people at Leyton Orient think of me.”
