Orient manager Martin Ling and his assistant Dean Smith have each signed two year deals to stay at Brisbane Road.

Both today showed commitment to the club and will continue their successful stint in the East End.

Ling said:’The start of last season, people were beginning to doubt both this club’s right to be in League One and my managerial abilities,’

‘But I think we proved them wrong by turning it around over the last 30 games of the season,’ he told the club’s website.

Ling’s can now fully concentrate on bringing in new players to the club. Ling is about to celebrate ten years association with the club and few could argue with around ten players wanted, this will be his busiest summer yet.
