Embleton passed the reins of Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient confirmed the appointment of Ross Embleton as permanent director.

Embleton started the season as interim boss before Carl Fletcher received the reins this season.

But after Fletcher left the club, Embleton resumed his role and is apparently impressed enough to be able to get the full-time job.

Nigel Travis said: “For a number of reasons it has been a difficult season and therefore the board of directors, together with Martin Ling, has been very deliberate in the search for the club’s new coach and we are happy to nominate Ross Embleton for that role.

“The club has held ongoing discussions with Ross over the past few weeks about improving field results, developing the first team and Ross’ desire to take on the role. We are confident that Ross is the right person to drive in. ahead of the O, his ability to guide players and his coaching staff is exceptional and provides stability, which is essential given the events of the season.

“Ross will be encouraged to strengthen the first team through the January transfer window, which began with the signing of Lawrence Vigouroux and the extension of George Marsh’s loan.”
