A service at Chelmsford Cathedral on July 16 will provide the opportunity for many to pay their respects to the O's late head coach

Leyton Orient have confirmed a memorial service to celebrate the life of Justin Edinburgh will take place at Chelmsford Cathedral on Tuesday, July 16.

The former Tottenham Hotspur defender passed away on Saturday, June 8 after he suffered a cardiac arrest earlier in the month.

An official club statement by O's read: "This service will provide the opportunity for many to pay their respects towards the much-loved 49-year-old.

"Justin's family and friends will join players and staff from Leyton Orient, along with representatives from across the footballing world for the memorial service which will start at 11am at Chelmsford Cathedral, Duke Street, Chelmsford, CM1 1EH.

"Limited space will be available for supporters to attend inside the cathedral and as demand is expected to be particularly high, seats will be allocated via a ballot.

"Fans can apply for a maximum of two people per application and need to email Elizabeth Freeman on e.freeman@leytonorient.net, providing their full name and the full name of up to one other.

"The closing date for the ballot will be midday on Thursday 4 July. Those with places will then be notified.

"The service will see family flowers only please, however, donations in lieu of flowers are welcomed to the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation."
