Fans, former players and football teams have all paid tribute to Leyton Orient manager Justin Edinburgh, who has passed away today at the age of 49.

He was taken to hospital on Monday morning after suffering a cardiac arrest.

It happened just weeks after he helped the club become National League champions, earning them promotion to the football league.

People have gathered outside the team’s Brisbane Road stadium to show their support for Edinburgh’s family and friends.

Flowers, flags and scarves have been left at the ground’s entrance where heartbroken fans have paid tribute to the late manager.

During his time at the club, Justin helped the team win 45 and draw 21 out of their 82 matches.

The supporters club has started a book of remembrance which will be open from 11am to 3pm tomorrow.

Leyton Orient announced his passing in a statement earlier today.

Fans have also taken to social media to express their love and support for the manager.

The first professional team Edinburgh played for, Southend United, was one of many across the country to send its condolences to his family.

He found his greatest success as a player at Tottenham, where he won the FA Cup and League Trophy.

The manager also left a mark on many players across his incredible career, including former Spurs teammate, Dean Austin.

“We are completely heartbroken by this tragedy,” said Orient chairman Nigel Travis.

“All our thoughts and love are with the Edinburgh family and we know from the messages that have flooded into the Club over the last week that the wider football world will share our sentiments.

“The success that Justin brought to Leyton Orient was incredible, but more importantly the impact he had on us all as a winner and a wonderful, inspirational human being will be his legacy and will stay with us forever.

“All our thoughts are with Justin’s wife Kerri and their children Charlie and Cydnie at this very sad time.”
