Official: Hendo becomes O’s manager

Ian_Hendon_West_HamLeyton Orient have appointed West Ham first team coach Ian Hendon as their new manager.

Hendon, 43, who played more than 150 times for Orient, takes up his new role on 1 July.

“Orient is a Club that means a great deal to me – I hope that fans will remember the commitment I showed as a player, and know they can expect the same dedication from me as Head Coach,” Hendo told www.leytonorient.com
“I’ve got a lot of experience of the lower leagues, having played at every level during my career and worked in League Two as player/manager, but having spent a few years working in the Premier League I have learnt a huge amount that will stand me in good stead for this new challenge.”
“I hope to be able to bring some stability to the Club and help rebuild after the disappointment of last season. Promotion is the priority, but reconnecting with the fans is also important. Having met the President, I was impressed with his own long-term plans for the Club, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Hendo’s Orient will be playing Teddy Sheringham’s Stevenage in league division two after  the O’s was relegated this season.
