Wingate & Finchley have announced the return of Freddy Moncur for his third spell with the Bostik League Premier club – this time on a more permanent basis.
The 21-year-old midfielder left Vanarama National League side Leyton Orient by mutual consent last week.
He had been in and around the first-team squad for the past three seasons, but was never able to establish himself as a regular, making eleven appearances for the O`s with nine of them occurring during the 2016/17 campaign.
After progressing through the academy system, Harlow-born Moncur was handed a third-year scholarship deal for the 2015/16 season.
Moncur made his debut in September 2015 after coming on as a sub at Luton Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Then-boss Ian Hendon handed the youngster another chance in the FA Cup months later, but his sacking coincided with the one-time West Ham United youth failing to make another appearance that season.
Nevertheless, Moncur signed his first professional contract with the club in the summer of 2016.
He had to wait until the end of February to feature for Orient again and when he did finally get a run of games in the O’s first-team, he was often played out of position or brought on as a substitute and therefore not able to show his true potential.
The son of ex-Spurs and West Ham star John Moncur had loan spells with Wingate during the 2015/16 season and then again the following campaign.
Once again, he was unable to force a way into Steve Davis’ side and found himself out on loan again with a second stint with Evo-Stik League South Premier outfit Bishop`s Stortford.
New boss Justin Edinburgh included Moncur on the bench on a couple of occasions, but he made the decision to move on.
Moncur ended up leaving the club last summer but was offered a new deal at the end of July.
