Tottenham Hotspur youngster George Marsh earned Leyton Orient’s man of the match award on his league debut. With 42 per cent of the vote, Leyton Orient fans voted for Marsh as the man of the match on Saturday.
🎵 He's here, he's there, he's everywhere! George Marsh!

The 20-year-old midfielder is on loan at Orient until January but he has had to wait for his debut. Marsh played in the Checkatrade Trophy but had to wait until this Saturday for his debut.
Leyton Orient travelled to table-topping Exeter City at the weekend and drew 2-2. Marsh played the full 90 minutes as the O’s came from behind to lead 2-1 thanks to Lee Angol and Louis Dennis.
However, Exeter levelled things in added time from the penalty spot. It was a respectable point for Leyton Orient, though, in a tough venue. The O’s are now 18th after this draw but they could have been 14th.
Marsh will be hoping to build on his impressive league debut for the East London club. His next challenge will be against Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday night. Here are some tweets from Orient fans discussing Marsh’s performance.
Needs to start on Tuesday

And George Marsh was apparently excellent, I’d have never imagined that a youngster given a two year pro deal at Spurs just a couple of months ago was actually any good at football 🤦♂️ Why has Embleton not played him in the league at all before today? Criminal. #lofc

Best player in a blue shirt by a mile. Absolutely everywhere.

George Marsh was superb yesterday considering he was carrying Wright and Gorman. Clay back in on Tuesday for either of those 2 would be the only change for me #lofc
