Old Boy Ben Is Back At Dagenham As Strevens Returns

Dagenham & Redbridge have announced Daryl McMahon’s replacement after confirming Ben Strevens as their new manager.

McMahon left the club on the eve of their trip to Notts County late last month and have been under the guidance of Steve Gritt and Dave Jupp ever since.

Results have been good with two wins but the board have moved to make an appointment.

The former Eastleigh manager, 42, won promotion to the Football League in 2006-07 as a player with the Daggers.

Executive Chaiman Peter Freund told the club’s website says the return made total sense.

“After a thorough search conducted over the past two weeks, I am delighted that one of our own has come back to coach the club,” he said.

“When meeting with Ben, it was immediately clear he has the right mix of passion and skill-set to take the Daggers forward.”

The East London club are 11th in the National League table and sit six points outside the play-offs.

Strevens made 125 appearances for Dagenham, scoring 35 goals.

His first assignment as the club’s new manager will be next weekend when they take on in-form Oldham Athletic.
