Leyton Orient: Lloyd James and Gary Sawyer sign new deals

Leyton Orient midfielder Lloyd James and defender Gary Sawyer have signed new deals with the League One club.

James, 26, scored five goals in 53 appearances this season for the east London club, who were beaten in the play-off final by Rotherham on Sunday.

Left-back Sawyer, 28, featured 28 times for the O's in 2013-14.

James has signed a two-year deal at Brisbane Road while Sawyer has penned a one-year deal which has the potential to be extended.

Both players joined Orient in the summer of 2012, with former Southampton trainee James arriving from Colchester and ex-Plymouth man Sawyer from Bristol Rovers.

"After a difficult week delighted to be signing a new contract and looking forward to next season," James posted on Twitter.
