Josh Coulson has been made first-team captain at Leyton Orient, assisting club captain Jobi McAnuff.

The 30-year-old, who joined Orient in 2017 from Cambridge United, will don the armband when McAnuff is not playing, with the winger combining his role as club captain with his new interim player/coach position.

Interim head coach Ross Embleton told the club website: “Josh has been a fantastic servant for us since he joined the club. We all saw when we lost him through injury two seasons ago what a massive miss he was.

“I think last year he was a fantastic leader on the pitch, everyone in the stands has built up a massive feeling for him – because of that song!”

Coulson himself said: “It will be a massive honour to lead the lads out when needed to. I’ve fallen in love with this club, it means a lot to me and my family. You couldn’t ask for a better role model than Jobi, I get on really well with him and hopefully I can help the team and help the football club.

“Obviously with Jobi stepping up in the tragic circumstances of the gaffer passing away, for me to step up as first team captain is something I look forward to. I’ll try to instil the things that gaffer instilled in me and to carry on his legacy.”
