Northern Ireland under-21 defender Josh Doherty has joined Premiership club Ards after leaving Leyton Orient.

The 20-year-old from Newtownards made one senior appearance for Watford having come through their academy.

Doherty, who can also play in midfield, moved to Orient last summer and had a month-long loan at Altrincham before his release earlier in January.

He has won five caps with the Northern Ireland U21 side and also played for the U17 and U19 teams.
