Former Tottenham Hotspur defender has penned two-and-a-half year deal with O’s
Leyton Orient have announced Justin Edinburgh as the new head coach of the National League outfit.
The O’s have been without a permanent boss since Steve Davis was sacked on November 14.
Edinburgh, who previously guided Newport County out of England’s fifth tier, has been named as Davis’ replacement, penning a two-and-a-half year deal with O’s.
The new man in the dugout has a tough job on his hands, with the east Londoners having not won any of their last 14 games in the league.
