Former Crewe Alexandra Manager Steve Davis has been named the new boss of Leyton Orient on a two-year-deal.
The O's were relegated to the National League from Sky Bet League Two last season, with Davis overseeing a 2-0 Alex victory at Brisbane Road in October, with George Cooper & his son, Harry, with the goals.
Davis was relieved of his duties at Gresty Road in January 2017 following a 3-0 defeat at Mansfield, with the Alex hovering dangerously above the drop zone.
Steve took Crewe to Wembley in his first season as Manager in 2011/12, winning promotion from League Two in the Play-Off Final against Cheltenham after ending the season with a 16-game unbeaten run to make 7th place & the final play-off spot.
A year later, he guided the Club to a comfortable 13th place finish in League One, but returned to Crewe a Wembley winner again after leading The Alex to Football League Trophy (JPT) glory with a final victory over Southend in April 2013.
Helping Crewe stave off relegation from League One on the final game of the season in both 2013/14 & 2014/15, it wasn't a case of third time lucky in 2015/16 as Crewe were relegated at the bottom of the table.
After a promising start to last season (2016/17) in League Two - leading the Club into the automatic promotion spots by mid-September - an alarming run of results led to a slide down the table before the decision was made to part company just days into 2017.
Davis took charge for a total of 272 matches during his five year tenure as Crewe Manager, with a win percentage of 30.9% & will always be remembered for his achievement in leading the Club to back-to-back Wembley victories.
Everyone at Crewe Alexandra would like to wish Steve all the best in his new role at Leyton Orient.
