JE3 Foundation shirt auction update
Tue 03 November 2020, 15:00|Tottenham Hotspur
We should like to thank all those who bid in our online auction of signed, match-worn shirts from our Carabao Cup victory against Chelsea in aid of the JE3 Foundation.
We are delighted to confirm that a total of £33,170.95 has been raised from the auction, which has now been donated to this worthy cause, set up in memory of our legendary former defender and Leyton Orient manager Justin Edinburgh, who sadly passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest in June, 2019, aged 49.
We had initially intended to auction our shirts when we drew Orient in the third round of the competition, but that tie didn't go ahead.
Justin made 276 appearances for the Club between 1990-2000, winning the FA Cup in 1991 and the League Cup in 1999. He also wrote himself into Orient folklore as a manager, guiding the East London club back into the Football League with a promotion from the National League in May, 2019.
The JE3 Foundation was established by his family soon after his death, aiming to support UK heart health charities and to campaign for legislative change – Justin’s Law – to make it compulsory for all health, fitness and sports facilities to be equipped with a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD).
