ANDY EDWARDS LEAVES LEYTON ORIENT

Andy Edwards has today resigned as manager of Leyton Orient and issued the following statement via the club website:

"It is with regret that I have made the decision to stand down as manager of Leyton Orient FC. 

It has been a very difficult decision but I feel that it is in the best interests of my career and my family.

I have been offered and duly accepted a role working within the coaching department of the Football Association.

It has been an honour and a privilege to have worked for the club for over seven and a half years. I thank the chairman for the opportunity to manage the team and I thank all staff, players and supporters for the backing that they have given to me in my time here. 

It goes without saying that I wish Leyton Orient FC every success in the challenge ahead and in the longer term future."

Leyton Orient have confirmed that Danny Webb has been appointed as the new manager, stepping up from his position as assistant manager
