Jake Caprice has revealed that he turned down offers from Football League sides and instead chose to sign for Leyton Orient because of the size of the club.

The exciting full-back arrives from National League rivals Woking, signing on a two-year deal.

The 24-year-old spent two years with the Cards, making 89 appearances, having signed from Lincoln City and previously played for Blackpool, Dagenham and Redbridge, St Mirren and Tamworth.

With new owner Nigel Travis now looking to drive the O’s back to the promised land, Caprice was delighted to sign.

He told the club’s website: “It’s a massive club and even being at the stadium and seeing how big it is. I know what it can do and hopefully we can have a good season and kick on from there.

“I had quite a few offers from clubs in this league and a few in the Football League as well. The size of the club made me want to come here.

“I had a really good time at Woking, nothing but fond memories really. I played week-in, week-out which is something I wanted to do going there. It was the right time for me to move on.”
