Still confirms Scannell sale

Midfielder Damian Scannell set to join Eastleigh from Dagenham & Redbridge.

Daggers have agreed to allow winger Damian Scannell to rejoin Blue Square South side Eastleigh, subject to a medical.

Scannell has made 17 appearances for John Still’s side this season, but should complete his move to the Hampshire club before the weekend.

Still said: “The move should go through, subject to a medical, which he is having today (Wednesday).

“His contract was up at the end of the season and with players coming in we had to look at reducing the squad.”
