Report: Hendon to become Orient boss

Ian_Hendon_West_HamWest Ham first team coach Ian Hendon has agreed to become the new manager of Leyton Orient, Sky Sports are reporting.

Orient have been looking for a new manager after Fabio Liverani departed by mutual consent earlier this month after failing to avoid relegation to League Two.

Hendon played for Spurs, Barnet and Leyton Orient and had spells managing Barnet and Dover Athletic as well being the assistant manager of Gillingham before he joined West Ham in 2011.

Hendon will become the second of Sam’s backroom boys to exit West Ham following the departure of former attacking coach Teddy Sheringham to League 2 Stevenage. Assistant manager Neil McDonald has been linked with the Blackpool job with reports claiming talks are ongoing.

  1. Good luck Ian,
    Take Demel,O,Brien and Nolan with you they will fit in well at that level

  2. Nolan… fast enough for league 2 ?

  3. Is anyone still petrified of this new Italian owner of Orient ? Will Orient soon groundshare the OS and sell more season tickets there than us ?

  4. Hamburg the Godfarther was only a film the OS contract is done and dusted,
    Orient will always be a second tier team and there fan base will never grow enough to be a problem to us ,
    If the Italian wants the big time he will have to wait until the 2 Daves want to sell and try and find the money but I didn’t think he will have enough,think we might be wereing burkas or
    Eating noodles at half time before pasta
