Leyton Orient defender Dan Happe feels he has a point to prove after signing a new two-year contract with the club.

The 22-year-old centre-back, a graduate of the O’s academy, made 40 appearances last season but felt his form tailed off towards the end of the campaign.

“I thought I started off last season well, but probably let myself down towards the end of the season – so I’m excited to get back to it and prove the doubters wrong,” he told the club website

“There’s a good group of players around me, a lot of experience in this league and the league above, so it’s a great opportunity for me to keep learning.”

Happe is the second O’s player to agree a new deal this summer after midfielder Craig Clay, while new signings Omar Beckles and Connor Wood have boosted their defensive options.
