Tottenham to auction signed match shirts to JE3 Foundation in memory of former Leyton Orient manager Justin Edinburgh who died of a heart attack a month after re-entering the Football League
- Tottenham will auction signed match shirts to the JE3 Foundation on Tuesday
- The foundation was established in memory of former player Justin Edinburgh
- Edinburgh was Leyton Orient’s manager when he died of a heart attack
- Spurs will host Orient in the Carabao Cup for the first time since his death
Tottenham will be auctioning their signed match shirts from Tuesday’s Carabao Cup match with Leyton Orient, with proceeds donated to the JE3 Foundation, set up in memory of Justin Edinburgh.
Edinburgh died of a heart attack last June, aged just 49, a month after leading Orient back into the Football League.
He played 276 times for Spurs between 1990 and 2000 and won the FA Cup and League Cup, so Tuesday’s third-round meeting promises to be an emotional evening.

Proceeds will go to the JE3 Foundation, founded for former star Justin Edinburgh
The JE3 Foundation was founded by Edinburgh’s son, Charlie, with the aim of supporting heart charities and campaigning for legislative change – Justin’s Law – to make it mandatory for all health, fitness and sports facilities to be equipped with a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD).
Charlie Edinburgh said: ‘This is another first-class touch from a great football club.
‘The support we have received and continue to receive from Tottenham Hotspur makes us proud as a family of how much father meant to the club and its supporters.

“Proceeds from the shirt auction will go a long way towards supporting the JE3 Foundation in raising awareness of CPR and defibrillator use, contributing to our campaign for ‘Justin’s Law’.
“The JE3 Foundation and the Edinburgh family would like to thank everyone who continues to support us.”
