George Marsh reflects upon positive loan spell at Leyton Orient

Speaking to the club’s official site, Tottenham Hotspur starlet George Marsh has opened up on his loan spell at  League Two side Leyton Orient.

The midfielder joined League the O’s on a 6-month loan in the summer. He later extended his tenure until the summer after impressing at The Breyer Group Stadium.

Marsh made his O’s debut against Southend United in the Leasing.com Trophy and he has gone on to make 29 appearances for the club. (h/t Transfermarkt)

A regular in our Under-23 set-up, Marsh has played for the first team in pre-season. He made his competitive debut in our FA Cup win at Tranmere Rovers in January 2019.

Marsh was later named on the bench for Premier League matches against Huddersfield Town and Everton last season. He was also a part of the travelling squad for the Champions League final in Madrid.

He has shown that he has the willingness to learn and adapt in a highly-competitive campaign at Orient. Marsh has also managed to enjoy himself in spite of the demands placed on him.

“I’ve really learned this year how to adjust because quite a big element of the football in League Two is the physical part, so I’ve had to learn how to adapt my game to meet the demands of how physical it is”

The heavy schedule of League Two was also a learning curve. He realized the importance of keeping himself fit to manage the heavy schedule.

The legend of Harry Kane began at Leyton Orient

Doing what is needed

Originally a midfielder, he has also filled in at right-back for Orient. Having played in the position before for Spurs helped him adapt well. His willingness to adapt when needed has been a telling attribute of his loan spell.

“I had to find a way to adapt my performances so that I could stay as a regular in the team. It’s been an invaluable experience for me.”

A number of Spurs players have made a name for themselves at Orient before starring in North London. Harry Kane, Andros Townsend and Tom Carroll all have made the journey from the N17 to E10.

Hopefully, Marsh too will make the step up soon.
