LEYTON ORIENT have sacked manager Carl Fletcher just 29 DAYS into his disastrous tenure at the League Two strugglers.
The club have parted company with their manager – who initially took over from Justin Edinburgh after his tragic death.
Fletcher leaves Orient with the club in real danger of dropping out of the Football League, sitting 16th in League Two.
Leyton Orient revealed the news with a statement on their website.
It read: “Leyton Orient has today parted company with head coach, Carl Fletcher, with immediate effect.
“Ross Embleton, Danny Webb and Jobi McAnuff will take control of first-team affairs in the meantime, as they did for an interim period at the beginning of the season.”
On the early firing, chairman Nigel Travis said, “It’s unfortunate for the club that we have parted company with Carl after such a short time, particularly as we are a club that tries to preserve stability.
“However, we felt this was in the best interests of all parties and we thank him for his hard work and wish him every success in the future.”
