Dagenham & Redbridge striker Aaron Blair has joined Isthmian League Premier Division side Cheshunt, on a loan deal until January.

Blair joined the Daggers at the beginning of the 2021/22 campaign, having spent several months prior training with the club before getting a chance to impress on trial during this year’s pre-season campaign.

He did just that, scoring three times in eight games which was enough to earn a professional contract with the Daggers, joining as part of the club’s apprenticeship scheme.

Blair previously spent time at Ongar Town, where he racked up over 100 goals for the club.

The youngster will now head out on loan to get regular first-team action as he has found chances limited since the start of the new National League season began.
