Senda, who made over 300 appearances for Wycombe Wanderers in his professional career, joins the O’s from his role as First Team coach at National League side Barnet.
His coaching career began at Brentford as an Academy coach, before a switch to the Barnet Under 18’s, where he worked hard to ensure a steady rise through the ranks into the first team setup.
“I’m incredibly excited, and since I took that first phone call it was something I didn’t need to think about, I wanted to be a part of it.”
“I’m a player’s coach really. I like to create relationships as quickly as I can, and help as many individuals as I can, and ultimately be there to support them – as coaches, we’re here to help them.”
“The role is all about supporting Ross, who has done a brilliant job up to this point – I think it gives him more opportunity to step back and have an overview, knowing he’s got someone that can take the day to day stuff.”
