Leyton Orient striker and former employee of the Bees, Andy Scott who played over 120 games for the club and scored 30 goals in his time at the club has chose to retire on advice from his doctor's who told him that he has the same heart problem which will Marc-Vivien Foe in 2003.

"Andy was a model pro and had impressed us all this season, scoring some great goals and having a big influence on the team," commented his manager at Orient.

"It's a terrible way for his career to end but there's more to life than football and we're just glad not to have lost him as a person as well." he added.

Scott visited doctors after complaining of pain in his chest in a game against Chesterfield. Tests showed that his heart problem was a fairly serious one and the Epsom born striker has been wished well by all previous clubs and managers.
