Just after he'd got the O's promoted, as well. Very sad.

Met Justin a couple of times when I was involved at Hayes FC/Hayes & Yeading Utd, when he was manager of Rushden & Diamonds, and later at Newport County. Very nice guy, horrendous that something like this should have happened, bloke was two years younger than me. It didn't bode well that there seemed to be no updates coming out about his condition.

He'd done a fantastic job getting Orient back into the League this season (as indeed he did with Newport in 2013), they were an absolute car crash of a club when he took over eighteen months ago, and hadn't made the adjustment to coming out of the FL at all well. Football-wise, it's incredibly sad for everyone down at Brisbane Road, and having taken two clubs back into the Football League, he would no doubt have had opportunities to manage higher up the divisions in the next few years.
