The family of Leyton Orient’s late head coach Justin Edinburgh have set up a foundation in his memory.

Edinburgh passed away earlier this month at the age of 49 having suffered a cardiac arrest just weeks after leading the O’s to the National League title.

The Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation was created last week and aims to support a charity that they believe will be related to heart or brain health, using money raised through different fundraising events and campaigns.

A crowdfunding page was created along with the foundation and has already seen it’s £5,000 target beaten, just four days after it was set up.

As well as raising money for those causes, the foundation will also be campaigning for a law change that will ensure defibrillators are equipped at all health and fitness centres across the country.

Support for the cause has also come from Edinburgh’s former club Tottenham Hotspur, where he spent a decade as a player.

One fans’ group has started selling t-shirts honouring their former left-back, with 100 per cent of the profits going to the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation.
