The Fall and Rise of Leyton Orient
The Fairytale Revival of One of Football's Oldest Clubs
By Simon Cooper

Key features
• True story of an incredible decade with London’s second oldest football club
• Foreword by BBC Tailenders and Radio 1 presenter Greg James
• Told through first-hand interviews with the journalists, fans, players and backroom         staff who were there, including Barry Hearn, Russell Slade, Richie Wellens, Jobi                 McAnuff, Dave Victor, Kent Teague, Nigel Travis, Matt Porter and more
• Written by Orient Hour presenter Simon Cooper, a former radio 1 producer who grew up a Manchester United fan until his mate took him to Leyton Orient in the late 90s 

The Fall and Rise of Leyton Orient tells the incredible story of a decade with one of football’s oldest clubs. From play-off heartbreak and double relegation to the verge of bankruptcy and the depths of the National League, it’s a story of a community that fought back. It’s Saturday, April 22, 2023. Everyone is talking about Wrexham AFC winning the National League. Meanwhile, in east London, Leyton Orient are quietly securing the League Two title. And their story is even better ... It’s the story of a club saved by a lifelong fan, then an inspirational manager, Justin Edinburgh, who took them back into the Football League as champions; of heartbreak when five weeks later Edinburgh died at the age of 49; and then of a club rebuilt again, winning another title with a new manager looking for a home, Richie Wellens. It’s an inspiring story of larger-than-life characters who made a difference for good or bad—players, fans, owners and charlatans. It’s also a tale of religion, redemption, triumph and tragedy—a football story like no other.
