Just heard the tragic news that Leyton Orient manager Justin has passed away aged just 49. Justin played for Spurs many times during the time I used to attend frequently.

My sympathies to everyone at Spurs and Leyton Orient management players and supporters. RIP Justin and thanks for all the fantastic memories.

As soon as it was announced he had suddenly fallen seriously ill it seemed it would be something like a heart attack or a stroke. Very tragic - a wonderful manager and seemed like such a lovely man too. Thoughts and condolences to his family, friends and to all at Orient.
63* forever.

Appalling news. 49 years old and an apparently fit man is taken by heart disease. Sincere condolences to his family, friends and all at Leyton Orient

He was one of those managers that we enjoyed over on the Wet Terrace. Quick witted, friendly and chatty - we'd take the Mickey and he'd return it in spades! He visited with Grays & Rushden & Diamonds as I recall.

If we had lost Coops, Justin would have been top of the list for his successor in my book. He had a great record of promotion success at small or unfashionable clubs and seemed to have turned around a failing bigger club. He will be sorely missed

I will go to the FGR away game at Leyton Orient in the next season, and quietly give a thought to JE before the game.Well done to all you achieved at the little East End club.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
