FORMER O's boss Martin Ling is still looking to get back into full-time management after missing out on two recent jobs.
Ling, who had been working for Scottish Premier League side Hibernian since leaving the O's, was a surprise contender for the manager's job at Easter Road, and was also on the shortlist for the Port Vale post.
The former O's boss has been seting up a scouting network in England for Hibs and identifying players that could make their mark at Easter Road.
And, following the recent resignation of Mixu Paatelainen, he emerged as a shock contender.
But John Hughes was appointed this week and Ling also missed out on the Vale job, after Micky Adams was unveiled as their new manager last Friday.
ORIENT will travel to Blue Square Premier club Luton Town for a friendly on Saturday, July 25, against the side that won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, but lost their Football League status.
