Leyton Orient have sacked manager Carl Fletcher after just 29 days in charge of the League Two club.

Fletcher succeeded Ross Embleton, who had been in interim charge after Justin Edinburgh's death in June.

Former Wales midfielder Fletcher, 39, had agreed a contract with Orient until the summer of 2021 on 16 October.

The O's, who are 16th in the fourth tier, were knocked out of the FA Cup by eighth-tier Maldon & Tiptree United in the first round on Sunday.

They failed to win any games with Fletcher in the dugout - he was an observer when Orient beat Grimsby 4-0 three days after his appointment.

Embleton will again take control of first-team affairs, along with Danny Webb and club captain Jobi McAnuff.

"It's unfortunate for the club that we have parted company with Carl after such a short time, particularly as we are a club that tries to preserve stability," chairman Nigel Travis said in a statement.

"However, we felt this was in the best interests of all parties and we thank him for his hard work and wish him every success in the future."
