CHIEF EXEC: An update on current matters

25 August 2023

Moxon, who picked up a number of awards for his exploits last term, was at the PFA Awards Dinner tonight to receive recognition for his efforts.

"I've said this a lot, but this kind of thing comes from the team doing well and it's about everybody, not just one or two people," he said.

"I'm obviously very proud, and I think the whole club can be proud of the fact that we saw it through to a successful outcome at Wembley.

"All of the lads in the squad played a part and we now want to build on what we did and push on. We've seen already that it's going to be a challenge, but we're up for it and looking forward to it."

Four of the leading lights from Leyton Orient’s title-winning team comprise the PFA League Two Team of the Year.

The O’s edged out Stevenage to secure top spot in the fourth tier, and it was primarily due to the resilience of their backline that conceded the fewest goals in the division.

Keeper Lawrence Vigouroux kept 24 clean sheets in 45 appearances and takes his place in goal in the PFA League Two Team of the Year. He is joined by defender Omar Beckles, whose leadership and experience were pivotal for Richie Wellens’ team. Idris El Mizouni and Paul Smyth also make the grade from Orient due to their prowess in the final third.

Fellow promoted clubs Stevenage, Northampton Town and Carlisle United each have one representative in the side. Carl Piergianni gets the nod for Stevenage at the back, Sam Hoskins’ excellence in front of goal has earned him the honour up front.

Salford City’s Elliot Watt proved that is developing into an outstanding midfielder, earning a Team of the Year slot and the nomination for League Two Player of the Year. Watt is joined by his Salford team-mate Ibou Touray, who enjoyed an impressive campaign at the back.

Completing the team are League Two top-scorer Andy Cook after notching 28 goals for Bradford City and Colchester United’s rising star Junior Tchamadeu.
