Leyton Orient defender Josh Coulson is set to depart the club at the end of the season when his contract expires. 

The 32-year-old, who was instrumental in the National League title winning season, has found game time hard to come by this term and will now depart as he seeks a new challenge. 

He made 119 appearances for the O’s where he found the back of the net on 12 occasions and was a massive fans favourite in the title winning campaign. 

“I just want to thank everyone who has played a part in my four seasons at the club,” Coulson said. 

“The last two seasons haven’t been what I wanted, but that 2018/19 season will live with me forever.
