Jobi McAnuff says he has no intentions of hanging up his boots just yet after the influential Leyton Orient skipper scored a brace in Saturday’s crucial 3-0 win over Harrogate Town, report the East London & West Essex Guardian.

Those goals, alongside McAnuff’s strike against Dover Athletic on Bank Holiday Monday, now mean that the 36-year-old has scored in every season during his 18-year career in the game.

Since returning to the Breyer Group Stadium from Stevenage for his second spell with the club in 2017, McAnuff has proven himself to be one of the O’s most consistent performers, playing influential roles in Orient’s wins over Barnet and Boreham Wood as well as their opening day draw with Salford City this campaign.

Head coach Justin Edinburgh praised the midfielder’s professionalism following Saturday’s win over Harrogate and McAnuff says he is still enjoying his football, despite being in the latter stages of his career.

Speaking to Leyton Orient’s website, McAnuff said: “I’ve had a really good run and am still enjoying my football. I’m lucky to be playing and that’s something that doesn’t get away from me. Being around the lads on a day to day basis and being at a fantastic club, I want to keep enjoying it for as long as I can.

“As long as I can keep contributing and being a part of the group, then I’ll keep going. I’ve got all the young lads to keep me going and we’ve got a real good blend at the moment. I’m happy to be a part of it and to be a part of a winning team.”
