Daggers right-back agrees initial one-year extension as Essex club reveal glamour tie with West Ham United

It has been a busy day for Dagenham & Redbridge, with defender Sam Ling signing a new, initial one-year deal and the Essex club revealing the remainder of their pre-season programme.

Ling arrived at Daggers last summer on an initial short-term deal which was extended in January, but injury restricted him to just 17 appearances.

However, the former Leyton Orient youngster, who can play at right-back and in midfield, has agreed a one-year extension, with the option of a further year.

As for the friendlies, Daggers announced on Thursday they would be hosting League Two outfit Stevenage on July 29.

Added to that now is a glamour friendly at home to a West Ham United XI a week earlier, believed to be part of the deal which allowed the Hammers’ development team to play at Victoria Road last season.

Daggers also revealed a host of other friendlies to various clubs across the non-league system.

Friendlies in full:

Bedford Town (A) – July 15, 3pm

Bowers & Pitsea (A) – July 18, 7.45pm

Thurrock (A) – July 18, 7.45pm

West Ham United XI (H) – July 22, 3pm

Eastbourne Borough (A) – July 24 7.30pm

St Albans City (A) – July 26, 7.30pm

Stevenage (H) – July 29, 3pm

Folkestone Invicta (A) – July 31, 7.45pm
