Baudry joins Dagenham & Redbridge

Mathieu Baudry joins on loan from Bournemouth

Dagenham & Redbridge have swooped to sign Mathieu Baudry on a five-week loan from Bournemouth.

The 24-year-old comes in to provide competition in the centre of defence, with Mark Arber currently struggling with a shoulder injury and Scott Doe doubtful for tomorrow night’s crucial game with Northampton Town due to illness.

Manager John Still said: “He’s a centre-half and we have no competition at the moment in that area.

“We have Mickey Spillane and Mark Arber playing there. Mark’s had a problem with his shoulder and Doey (Scott Doe) is ill, so we’ve brought Mathieu Baudry in.
