Leyton Orient to send player they signed last year on loan to new club

Hendon have announced on their official club website that Leyton Orient have recalled Ethan Light from his loan spell and are expected to send him to Banbury United.

Leyton Orient let the youngster join the Southern League Premier Division South side back in August last year to get some experience under his belt in non-league.

Light, 19, has since made 38 appearances in all competitions for the Greens this season, scoring five goals.

Hendon have now announced he has gone back to Brisbane Road and is poised to link up with Banbury in the National League North until the end of this campaign.

Light’s switch to Hendon has worked wonders for him and his development.

He was only meant to spend a month at Silver Jubilee Park when he joined them last summer. However, he has stayed with them for seven months and has been a first-team regular.

Leyton Orient swooped to sign him back in January 2023 from Burnham.

He penned an 18-month contract with Richie Wellens’ side and is a player to keep an eye out for in the future for the League One outfit.

In the meantime, he is set to sign for Banbury to test himself at a new level. They are sat in 22nd in the table and are in a relegation battle so it will be a new challenge for Light to sink his teeth into.

Leyton Orient are back in action tomorrow with an away trip to in-form Lincoln City. However, they will go level on points with the Imps if they win.

Wellens’ men won 1-0 away at Stevenage last time out before the international break. They are five points off the play-offs with seven fixtures left to play so aren’t out of the race for the top six just yet.
