Town Bring In Harvest

We are pleased to announce the signing of holding midfielder Emmanuel Harvest from Leyton Orient on a 28-day loan.

Emmanuel, who signed a professional contract with the O’s in June 2023, is described by his parent club as a ‘combative midfielder’ and started the season with Hornchurch, making 14 appearances before spending the final two months of the year with St Albans City. He has also had prior experience at Harlow Town.

Manager Gavin Macpherson added: “It all came about quickly and I’d like to thank Leyton Orient for making this happen. We are lacking in holding midfield, mainly down to Louis Birch having had a difficult time recently and the departure of Leo [Donnellan] this week. Louis has started getting game time after a long period out but in Manny we’ve added immediate resilience in that area.

“Manny has recent step 2 experience on loan and means we have a current option other than Scott, I feel is important with the current schedule.”
