Should go in as number one, he is superior to Orient's keepers

Disgree. Jamie Jones is a very good goalkeeper for them and initially I was surprised Orient had gone for Button.

So I had a quick look at Orient's website and found that Jones has been laid off with a shoulder injury for potentially 6 months leaving them with only their back-up keep, Lee Butcher (one of our old youngsters).

So this makes sense now and I suspect Button will get a good opportunity to compete for game time until Jones comes back and is fully recuperated.

My mistake, I hadn't seen Jones was injured, just that he wasnt in goal so assumed he had moved on. Orient have had a poor start and Button is superior to Butcher whose been in goal, and letting in goals, this season
