League Two: Leyton Orient sack manager Ian Hendon

League Two side Leyton Orient have sacked manager Ian Hendon with the club 11th in the table.

Hendon, a former Orient player, was put in charge following the club's relegation from League One last year. 

The 44 year old made a good start winning his first five games, but has only won another five games in the 26 games since then, leaving the club mired in mid table.

His final match game was the 3-1 defeat at home by Exeter on Saturday.

The club released a statement on the club's official website which read,' "The Club would like to thank Ian for his commitment and passion during his time at Leyton Orient and would like to wish him the best in his future endeavours."

"Assistant Manager Andy Hessenthaler will be assuming Ian's duties on an interim basis as Caretaker Manager. Leyton Orient will make an announcement at such time as a new appointment is made."

"The coaching and management team will continue to focus on realising the full potential of the team and will be working intensively to enhance the Club's performance and position in the League."
