Contract Extension:I have signed to compete for a shirt



The 39-year-old midfielder has around 700 professional club appearances under his belt and is an essential member of the O’s team both on and off the field.

The five-time promotion champion declared, “First and foremost, I have signed to compete for a shirt,” after agreeing to a new contract. Even though I am aware that I won’t start every game, I believe I can make an impact on the club on the field.

We’ve had a fantastic few seasons, and hopefully we can continue to improve next year. I appreciate using my knowledge to mentor our younger players, so even when I’m not playing, I know I can still make a difference.

“I am extremely appreciative that the club has informed me that there may be more opportunities for me to do some coaching during the upcoming season, and this may very well be my last playing contract.”

Naturally, Pratley is the most seasoned player for Orient, and head coach Richie Wellens is overjoyed to have his skipper signed on for an additional season.

“Managers who talk about having a good dressing room have people like Darren Pratley in them,” the man stated. When it comes to his personal grooming, training regimen, and interpersonal communication, Prats is an inspiration to all aspiring athletes.

“Giving him another season made sense to me since, among other things, he is still in good shape and has proven in recent seasons that he can have an impact on the field. Furthermore, we are a pretty young team without him.

His knowledge and friendly demeanor are invaluable to us, and he greatly influences our younger players by mentoring and encouraging them during the latter moments of games.

He’s still with us, and I’m incredibly happy about it.
