It’s decision time for Dagenham & Redbridge as their season has drawn to a close with a number of players set to be out of contract in the coming weeks.
The likes of Elliot Justham, George Saunders, Joey Jones, Paul McCallum, Angelo Balanta, Will Wright, Callum Reynolds, Elliott Johnson and Mohammed Sagaf are all reportedly still in contract, while a few other players have clauses which could see them stay on at the Victoria Road club.
Myles Weston, Mauro Vilhete, Dean Rance, Sam Deering, James Dobson, Kenny Clark, Mitch Brundle, Matt Robinson, Darren McQueen, Adrian Clifton, Josh Strizovic, Andrew Eleftheriou, Scott Wilson, Harry Phipps and Luke Croll are all out of contract.
However, a few may have already had their clauses triggered and extended their stays for next season.
Liam Gordon, Saidou Khan and Tom Smith were all on loan with Dagenham therefore the club will have to wait and see on that trio if they’re keen to bring them back to the club permanently.
