Danny Webb replaces Andy Edwards at Leyton Orient

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 30 January 2017, 09:48

Leyton Orient have appointed their fourth manager of the season, and 10th boss in the last two-and-half-years.

Andy Edwards handed in his resignation on Sunday, with the O’s instantly handing assistant boss Danny Webb (son of former Chelsea and Southend manager David Webb) the reins until the end of the season.

Edwards, who had only been in charge for two months, decided to leave the League Two club in order to take a youth coaching job with the Football Association, leaving Orient 23rd in the table.

Leyton began the season with Andy Hessenthaler at the helm, however he was axed in September, with Alberto Cavasin surprisingly coming in the opposite direction.

The Italian lasted just seven weeks and 10 games, eight of which he lost, and Edwards proceeded to step up and take charge of the first team.

But now, just two months later, he decided to vacate his post (after just nine games) in order to join the FA youth set-up.

Edwards’ replacement, Webb, 33, now inherits a struggling side who are on a four game losing streak, which leaves them fighting for their Football League status. The former Southend player has a daunting first fixture in charge, taking on high-flying Carlisle (3rd) on Saturday.

Leyton Orient's statement confirming the appointment of Danny Webb:

The club can confirm Danny Webb has been appointed Leyton Orient manager following the resignation of Andy Edwards earlier this afternoon.

Having been appointed as first-team coach in the summer, Webb became assistant manager to Edwards after his appointment on November 23, 2016, and the 33-year-old will now step up to the position of first-team manager until the end of the season.

Danny will take charge of his first game on Saturday when the O's host Carlisle United at the Matchroom Stadium.
