On holding the event, Daggers’ managing director, Steve Thompson MBE, said: “We are very pleased to be working with the Essex County FA on this important campaign.
“The Respect agenda is something we fully support, with our Community Trust delivering Respect lessons to over 1,200 schoolchildren each year.”
