Carl Fletcher Lands Leyton Orient Top Job

Congratulations to Sport Careers Agency Client Carl Fletcher on his appointment as the manager of Leyton Orient.

The 39-year-old ex-Wales midfielder has agreed a contract until the end of the end of the 2020-21 season.

He replaces Ross Embleton following the death of previous Orient manager Justin Edinburgh.

"Carl brings not only plenty of football experience but also the modern skills in managing a football team through the last seven years at Bournemouth," Orient chairman Nigel Travis told the club website.

"I want to thank Ross for the outstanding job he has done filling the gap during the last several months.

"He has handled the circumstances with a sensitivity and a skill that very few could match."

Following Fletcher's appointment, Danny Webb will switch from interim assistant coach to his previous role of first team development coach, but Jobi McAnuff will continue as player-coach.
