Andy Hessenthaler has continued to remain busy in the transfer market bringing another three players to Leyton Orient recently, as well as confirming Danny Webb has moved up to a first-team coaching role.

Orient signed Yvan Erichot after the former Monaco man left Sint-Truiden.

Scottish international, formerly with Bristol City, Liam Kelly was signed from Oldham with Jordan Bowery, once of Aston Villa, also brought in after he left Oxford.

Webb has been coaching at Orient for the past five-years, starting at U14s level and moved up through the various age groups to U18 level last season with the 33-year-old now brought into Hessenthaler’s first-team set up.

French defender Erichot, who can play at right back or in central defence, became the sixth signing of the summer when the 26-year-old signed a two-year deal that comes with the option of another.

After him Hessenthaler then added Oldham captain Kelly.

An undisclosed fee brought the once capped Scottish international (back in 2012) to Brisbane Road on a three-year contract with Hessenthaler commenting on the 26-year-olds arrival, telling the official website.

‘He is an excellent player and we now have four central midfield players. Liam played a lot of football last season for Oldham and we certainly did our homework on him and we are delighted to have him here. Liam is excited and sees where the club wants to go and he wants to be part of that.’

The eighth arrival, and the last one so far, was former Chesterfield striker, who also had a two-year spell with Villa, Bowery.

Having moved onto Rotherham he spent the second half of last season with Oxford but was released after they gained promotion from League 2. Bowery, who did gain Premier League experience with Villa, has signed a two-year deal that also comes with the option of another 12-months.
