The Club are saddened to hear of the death of O’s legend Glenn Roeder.

The former Orient defender has died at the age of 65 after a long battle with a brain tumour.

Roeder was a classy ball playing centre-back, who spent five years at the O’s, making 123 appearances in two spells. Glenn was a part of the famous O’s squad that reached the FA Cup semi-final back in 1978.

That summer he moved to QPR, for whom he made 181 senior appearances. The defender also represented Newcastle United, Watford and Gillingham in a fantastic playing career.

Roeder’s impressive career extended to football management. After a stint as an England Coach under Glenn Hoddle, Roeder went on to manage right at the very top of the game, enjoying spells at West Ham United, Norwich City and at the Magpies.

Our thoughts are with Glenn’s friends and family, during a terribly tough period.
