Leyton Orirent are to rename the West Stand at the Breyer Group Stadium The Justin Edinburgh Stand in tribute to their late head coach.

Edinburgh died in June 2019 after guiding the O's back into the Football League by winning the National League title, and reaching the FA Trophy final at Wmebley.

The renaming will be marked by Edinburgh's wife Kerri and children Cydnie and Charlie ahead of tomorrow's home game with Newport County, who the late O's boss also managed to promotion in 2013.

Kerri Edinburgh told the O's website: “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 [Travis], Kent [Teague], 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.”

With the backing of Walsingham Motor Insurance Limited, new signage on the stand will prominently feature the logo of the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation, allowing all inside the ground to see it.

O's chief executive Danny Macklin said: "We are proud to be revealing the new name for the West Stand which we hope will be a fitting tribute to Justin whilst also promoting the exceptional work of the Foundation.

“We are also pleased to be partnering with Walsingham Motor Insurance as they look to support us and also the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation for the remainder of the 2019/20 season and a further three seasons to come.”

A number of fundraising initiatives for the foundation will take place at tomorrow's game, including a bucket collection, a half-time penalty shootout and a raffle in the Leyton Orient Supporters Club.
