The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

TEENAGER Scott Kashket is be­ing backed to have a big fu­ture in the game by Ley­ton Ori­ent team-mate Con­nor Es­sam.

The 19-year-old for­ward signed a two-year pro­fes­sional con­tract with Ori­ent in the sum­mer of 2014 and made three ap­pear­ances last sea­son. He scored the first pro­fes­sional goal of his ca­reer at Ox­ford last week, com­ing off the bench to res­cue a 2-2 draw.

“I am re­ally pleased for Scott and all the lads are be­cause it is nice to see the young­sters com­ing through,” said Es­sam, 23.“He is re­ally hard to play against, he is so small, gets in and around you and is just one of those dif­fi­cult play­ers.”
