George Marsh has continued to earn rave reviews after the midfielder was named man of the match on his full League Two debut for Leyton Orient in their 2-2 draw against Exeter City at St James’ Park on Saturday.
The 20-year-old, who is currently on a short-term loan deal with the League Two outfit, has been a revelation since joining the O’s from Tottenham earlier this summer.
And Marsh, who’s only other start for the club came in their victory over Southend United in the EFL Trophy recently, was handed his first ever league start by Ross Embleton in Devon.
Orient might have conceded an injury-time equaliser to extend their winless league run to four matches, but it didn’t overshadow what was a fine afternoon for the youngster.
The O’s have a new song about their midfielder – as you can see in the tweet below – who comfortably won their man of the match vote on their Twitter account yesterday.
? He's here, he's there, he's everywhere! George Marsh!

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

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
