Tottenham midfielder George Marsh: Leyton Orient loan great for me

Tottenham midfielder George Marsh has enjoyed his loan with Leyton Orient.

Marsh says it was a big learning process playing League Two football.

“I've really enjoyed my first year in senior football," said the 21-year-old to the Spurs website.

“It took a little bit of adaptation to start off with, but I don't feel like it took me long to settle in. For me, 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.

“Having to play a lot of weeks on a Tuesday night and then another game on a Saturday is very demanding so you have to make sure you're always recovering properly, so you know by the Saturday you're 100 per cent ready to go again for another 90 minutes.

“It's been good gaining experience from a lot of experienced players as well, top professionals who have played lots of games in the Football League. I'm really thankful to everyone at the club for everything they've done for me."
