Former Crewe boss Steve Davis takes charge of Leyton Orient

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 11 July 2017, 09:45

Steve Davis has returned to the dugout with National League side Leyton Orient, becoming the club's sixth head coach in less than a year.

Davis had been out of work since leaving Crewe back in January after five years at the helm - he was the fourth longest-serving boss in the top-4 tiers - but he's now back in the managerial arena after penning a two-year contract with the O's.

Orient lost their Football League status after 112 days last May following a troubled season during which they were served with a winding-up petition and went through a whopping five managers.

Now under new owner, businessman Nigel Travis, supporters will be hoping for a period of stability off the pitch, on the pitch, and now in the dugout, with the likes of Omer Riza, Danny Webb, Andy Edwards, Alberto Cavasin, and Andy Hessenthaler all managing the club during the 2016/17 season.

New boss Davis, who has National League experience with Nantwich Town, has roughly four weeks to prepare for the rapidly approaching 2017/18 campaign, with his first match in charge away to Sutton United on 5 August, which is followed by clashes with Solihull Moors, Maidstone United, Bromley and Woking.

As the new season approaches Orient can currently be backed at 9/1 (Betway) to win promotion straight back up to the fourth-tier, while they can be found at 16/1 (Sky Bet) to do so in style by winning the division.
