League Two club Leyton Orient have named Ross Embleton as interim head coach following the death of manager Justin Edinburgh earlier this month.

Embleton, 38, had been assistant to Edinburgh, who passed away aged 49 on 8 June after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Danny Webb has been appointed as interim assistant coach, while 37-year-old O’s captain Jobi McAnuff has become interim player-coach.

“No-one will ever forget Justin,” Embleton told the club website.
