O’s chance for youngsters

Forest School year 11 pupils Sam Telling and Henry Ochieng have been offered Scholarships by Leyton Orient.

Should the boys accept, they would become Leyton Orient apprentices, and at 18, could be offered professional contracts.

The boys have 28 days to decide whether they will accept the Scholarships, which if accepted, would require

them to train with the club on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, with matches on Saturday.
