The west stand will be officially renamed at tomorrow’s game
Their late head coach guided them into League Two last season before sadly passing away in June.
The west stand will be officially renamed before tomorrow’s game against Newport County, who were also promoted from the National league under Edinburgh.
Justin’s wife, Kerri, said: “It is with enormous pride and excitement that on Saturday we will be attending Leyton Orient v Newport County for the official unveiling of The Justin Edinburgh Stand.
“Over the past months we can’t thank Leyton Orient enough for their continued support to us all. We’ll be forever grateful for that and know why Justin loved this club and the people involved with it so much.
“One of Justin’s and our family’s most memorable moments of his managerial career was the promotion back to the Football League which was secured on the pitch in front of this stand which will now proudly be named after Justin.
“We’d like to thank Nigel, Kent, the Board of Directors and all the staff at Leyton Orient for making this possible and for always making us feel welcome and part of the Orient family; our family and friends for their continued support; and finally, football fans all over the UK, especially those Leyton Orient supporters and Newport County supporters with whom Justin had an incredible mutual bond and supported him and his teams so passionately.”
Tomorrow’s match day against Newport County will include a number of fundraising initiatives for the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation, set up in his memory.Tags: Leyton Orient, Football
