We are saddened and shocked to hear of the passing of Justin Edinburgh, aged 49.
Our condolences and thoughts go out to his family and friends as well as everyone that worked alongside Justin at Orient.
One Orient supporter said: “It is hard to explain how much this man lifted our club when it was on its last legs . He made supporting the Os seem like fun again and we all fell back in love with the club.”
Edinburgh led Orient’s promotion back to the Football League in May, less than two years since he became manager at Brisbane Road.
