Ross Embleton also named assistant first team coach of O’s

Former first-team manager Danny Webb has rejoined Leyton Orient as youth team coach.

Webb had been with the east Londoners since 2011 and had a number of roles before managing O’s from January until March, when he resigned from the position.

The 33-year-old, though, has now returned to the club and will work with the Brisbane Road outfit’s promising youngsters.

Orient have also confirmed Ross Embleton as the club’s new first-team assistant coach.

Embleton was previously youth development manager when Martin Ling was in charge of the club.

And with Ling now back as director of football, Embleton has linked up with him again, having also worked with the former O’s boss at Swindon Town.

“Ross knows this club very well. I brought him over from working with the community to come and be my youth coach when I was managing here,” Ling told the club website on the appointments.

“I always saw the talent he had as a young coach, and he has now served a good apprenticeship in terms of working at the likes of AFC Bournemouth and becoming my first-team coach at Swindon Town.

“Danny is not someone I have seen coach, but I have spoken to a lot of people and thought he did a good job when he was working in the first team with difficult circumstances.

“The good thing with Danny, is that when I asked where he wanted to be and where he felt his skill set was best suited for at this moment in time, Danny responded by saying it was with the under-18s.”
