Embleton named Leyton Orient interim head coach

Leyton Orient has announced Ross Embleton will be the club’s interim head coach.

The 38-year-old was assistant to Justin Edinburgh, who sadly passed away earlier this month after suffering a cardiac arrest.

“I am incredibly proud,” Embleton said. “I’m privileged to be stepping into this opportunity to try to be able to help the club through what is going to be a very, very tough period.

“No-one will ever forget Justin. He’s made an impression, selfishly, on me and my family in a way that no-one I’ve ever met has managed to do.

“To have known someone for 18 months and to make it feel like 18 years, it is vitally important that everything we do at this football club, whether that is me as Interim Head Coach or new players, that Justin remains a pivotal part of that.”

Embleton will be assisted by Danny Webb, who has been named as interim assistant coach, while last season’s captain Jobi McAnuff will take on a player/coach role.

Orient’s Director of Football Martin Ling said: “It has been a period which I have never, ever faced in my football career. You don’t get a manual to deal with it but you deal with it the best way you can and deal with it with Justin always in your thoughts.

“I’ve got no hesitation that Ross can step up and do the top job. The caveat to that is that I don’t want anyone being judged during this period that then can be surplus to requirements. If it doesn’t work out then there’s the opportunity for them to step back down to where they worked last year but can Ross do it? Without a shadow of a doubt.”

Orient has already signed striker Conor Wilkinson from Dagenham & Redbridge, to replace Macauley Bonne who joined Charlton earlier this week.
