Where is Justin Edinburgh now?
A Tottenham Hotspur stalwart who played for the club for most of the nineties, Justin Edinburgh finished his playing career in 2003 after a spell, first at Portsmouth and then as player manager of Billericay Town.
Edinburgh left Billericay in 2006 to take on the vacant managerial role at Fisher Athletic but left at the end of the season by mutual consent despite leading the team to promotion.
He then went onto join Grays Athletic as assistant manager and was promoted to manager when Andy King resigned but he left after one season, again by mutual consent.
In 2008 he joined Rushden and Diamonds, first as assistant manager and then as manager when Garry Hill resigned.

Unfortunately after a mid-table finish in 2010-11 Rushden & Diamonds were expelled from the Football League that summer leaving Edinburgh out of work and looking for a new job.
He wasn’t out of football for long as Newport County offered him the manager’s post in October 2011.
In 2012-13 Edinburgh’s Newport County team achieved promotion to League Two after defeating Wrexham in the Conference Play-Offs.
After a successful four years at the Welsh side, he left the in February 2015 to join League One side Gillingham as manager.
Although Edinburgh had two top half finishes during his time at the club he was sacked in January 2017 after a string of poor results left his side struggling in 17th place.
He was only out of work for a matter of days before he joined League One side Northampton Town as their new manager at the end of January 2017.
Unfortunately after a terrible start to the 2017-18 season Edinburgh was sacked after failing to win any of their first six games, leaving the club bottom of the table.
In November 2017, Edinburgh made a return to football management with non-league side Leyton Orient guiding them to the top of the table and promotion to League Two in May 2019.
Just a month after this historic event Edinburgh suffered a cardiac arrest and tragically died five days later. He was just 49 years old.
