Leyton Orient allowed former West Ham trainee Frazer Shaw to leave this summer, he’s signed for Accrington.

It as also confirmed former Bolton and Newcastle, and player-manager, Kevin Nolan has left.

Shaw, when he left West Ham, had time in non-league football with Billericay and Dulwich Hamlet, spent last season at the Brisbane Road but was allowed to leave by Andy Hessenthaler this summer after 30-matches for Orient.

The 21-year-old should come up against Orient this coming season as he’s signed a two-year deal with Accrington, telling the Accrington website.

‘It’s another opportunity for me to push on in my career. I just want to really push on now, do well for the club and hopefully we can get promoted.’

Nolan on the other hand still had another year-and-a-half on his Orient deal.

The midfielder signed a two-and-a-half year deal to become our player-manager back in January, making him the youngest boss in the Football League, but he moved aside in April with Hessenthaler taking over.

34-year-old Nolan had reverted to a role of player only having won seven of his 15-matches in charge but has now officially ended his time with the club after 14-matches for Orient as a player with all but two as a starter.
