Leyton Orient have confirmed the club has parted company with head coach Steve Davis.

Davis was appointed in July, but following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Ebbsfleet United and the Club placed 19th position in the Vanarama National League, the 52-year-old departs with immediate effect.

The Club would like place on record our thanks to Steve for his endeavours during his time at Leyton Orient, but will now undergo a thorough recruitment process as we look to appoint a successor.

Ross Embleton and Dean Brill will take charge of First Team affairs on an interim basis.

Club Chairman Nigel Travis, said; “There is no doubt results haven’t been up to the required levels over the last two months. We showed a lot of promise in the early part of the season and unfortunately that hasn’t been sustained, so we felt it was time to make a change in order to give us the best chance of turning our fortunes around for the second half of the season.

“Steve came in to the Club at a difficult time with a shortened pre-season and a complete squad and staff rebuilding process underway. He worked tirelessly and professionally and we know from the players how much they enjoyed his training ground work.

“However, ultimately football is a results’ based business and whilst we knew this was going to be a challenging season, we did not expect to be so close to the bottom four at this stage.”
