ORIENT boss Geraint Williams still has plenty of work to do assembling a new squad for next season - but his backroom staff are now in place.
The latest addition is Andy Edwards, who becomes the club's new youth team manager on a two-year contract.
It was a position originally filled by Kevin Nugent, but he stepped up to become caretaker boss following the departure of Martin Ling, and then became Williams' number two.
Former O's player Wayne Burnett came in on a short-term contract to fill the void, but left at the end of the season to join Dagenham & Redbridge.
Edwards, 37, was assistant manager of Blue Square South side St Albans City, but made his mark in the Football League, playing over 500 games for Southend, Birmingham, Peterborough and Rushden & Diamonds.
Williams said: "We're delighted to welcome Andy to the club. He brings lots of good ideas to the table."
