It might not have been the result Leyton Orient fans wanted to end the season on, but when the final whistle blew, it was all forgotten about pretty quickly.
After two years in the National League, the O’s are heading back to the Football League after final day results all went Orient’s way, sending the east London side to the title and to League Two.
This season has not added some new names into Leyton Orient’s cult hero catalogue but has also established that manager Justin Edinburgh will go down in club history as one of the greats to manage the historic team.
Edinburgh joined the O’s in a part of their history that was arguably their lowest point. Newly relegated to the National League and looking like a side that could be relegated again, the appointment of the former Newport County man was not expected to be a turning point for Orient, but it most certainly was.
After steering the club away from relegation, Edinburgh has taken things to the next level in the next and current season, winning the National League title and taking the club back to the Football League faster than anyone expected.
This achievement has established Edinburgh as one of the all-time managerial greats for the east London side, and with the fans and players on such a high after promotion and Orient having strong club foundations to actually challenge in League Two, the future is looking even brighter for the O’s.
Leyton Orient fans, can the O’s succeed in League Two? Let us know!
