Very sad news - it sounded serious from the amount of secrecy when he went into hospital, but it's still a shock.
Remember him at Tottenham as a player (he went to watch them in the CL final in Madrid only last Saturday) - always gave his all, got Cup medals, also did well at a few other clubs.
Had a great record as a non-league manager, and turned things round at Orient after their relegation to the NL. He will be missed there.
Saw him only 3 weeks ago at Wembley on the sidelines for the Trophy Final.
No age to go - RIP Justin.



If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.

Took Newport County to Wembley twice, for the FA Trophy final and then the play-off which meant we regained League status. By any measurement one of our greatest managers. Many heartbroken County fans tonight.

If nothing else the guy was a legend and it’s a sad day for football at various clubs. Puts life into focus at a young age.

It is only 6 weeks ago today that Justin Edinburgh had led Orient to the Conference title, having revitalised the playing side in his 18 months at the helm.
Only last Saturday, he was in Madrid for the Champions League final with other former Spurs team mates.
Today he sadly is no longer with us.

Condolences to Justin’s family and friends, and all those mourning his passing.
Rest in Peace Justin.

Terrible news and quite a shock as I hadn't realised his condition had remained critical since he was admitted. Way too young to leave us but at least he achieved more in life than many ever will. RIP.
