Altrincham have signed defender or midfielder Josh Doherty on a month`s loan from League Two side Leyton Orient.

Orient signed the left-sided player following his release from Premier League side Watford in the summer.

The 20-year-old signed an initial one-year deal with an option of a second with the O’s.

Doherty is a youth international for his native Northern Ireland, and moved over to England when he signed for the Hornets in 2012 after coming through the academy at Ards.
