Orient appoint Williams as boss

Geraint Williams
Williams left Colchester in September with them 23rd in League One

League One strugglers Leyton Orient have appointed Geraint Williams as manager until the end of the season.

The 47-year-old replaces Martin Ling, who left the O's by mutual consent on 18 January after more than five years in charge at Brisbane Road.

Williams guided Colchester to their highest-ever league position - 10th in the Championship in 2006/07 - but left his role as manager in September 2008.

The Welshman will be assisted by Kevin Nugent, who was caretaker boss.

Orient picked up four points from four games under Nugent - including a 2-1 win over MK Dons.

Meanwhile, the O's have announced that takeover talks have fallen through.
