Leyton Orient set to appoint new permanent manager

Evening Standard Sports 1 month ago

Leyton Orient expect to appoint a permanent successor to Justin Edinburgh next week.

Edinburgh died in June, aged 49, following a cardiac arrest.

Ross Embleton was named interim manager but last month he made the decision to step down from his position and revert back to his former role of assistant coach.

Orient director of football Martin Ling has been leading the search for a new manager and the League Two club have narrowed their shortlist down to the final few candidates.

Former Plymouth manager Derek Adams and Cambridge United boss Colin Calderwood have been linked with the job.

Former Tottenham defender Calderwood is close friends with Ling and was team-mates with Edinburgh at Spurs in the 1990s.

Embleton has played a key role in helping Orient through a difficult period since Edinburgh died having guided the club back into the Football League earlier this year.

Orient are 20th in League Two after 12 games. Embleton, 37, is likely to lead the team for the final time for their home against Walsall on Saturday and Orient then want a new manager in place for their trip to Grimsby Town next Saturday
