Who is Leyton Orient's manager?

Ross Embleton is the current interim manager of Leyton Orient FC after the sad passing of previous manager Justin Edinburgh. Embleton was appointed by Leyton Orient FC as an assistant manager in 2017 but was promoted to head coach in June 2019. Ross Embleton was born on 9 November 1981 in England.

Previously as a footballer, Ross Embleton played only for Bedford Football Club in the 2016-17 season. He made 4 appearances overall for the club, only 2 of which were competitive appearances and he failed to score for the club in his one year stint. He then worked as a youth development manager at Leyton Orient FC whilst also working at Tottenham Hotspur, Norwich City and AFC Bournemouth. He also worked as a first team coach at Swindon Town before returning to Leyton Orient in 2017 to be assistant manager to Justin Edinburgh.

In the 2017-18 season, Ross Embleton and Justin Edinburgh guided the team to a 13th place finish in the National League. The following season, however, Leyton Orient finished top and therefore gained promotion to the EFL League Two. On June 3rd 2019, manager Justin Edinburgh went into a cardiac arrest and sadly passed away 5 days later aged 49. The club announced a period of mourning for the late manager and opened the stadium for fans to pay their respects. Ross Embleton was made interim manager but it’s yet to be seen whether the club will stick with him or not.

Ross Embleton has been in trouble with the Football Association in the past for using foul language towards match officials during a match and was charged for misconduct in April 2019. If Leyton Orient decide to stick with Ross Embleton, he’ll hope the club are willing to support him in the transfer window so that he can put his own style of football into the players. He was fan favourite Justin Edinburgh’s assistant and therefore the fans will be happy with the appointment. However, the club may decide to go for a more experienced manager since Embleton has never been in such a big managerial job. It’s the club’s first season in the EFL League Two after being promoted last season and the fans will hope Embleton can keep the club afloat rather than being stuck in a relegation battle.

The 23th september 2019 Leyton Orient confirmed that Ross Embleton has made the decision to revert to his position of Assistant Coach upon the appointment of a new Head Coach.
