Dagenham & Redbridge have announced that experienced defender Kenny Clark has extended his stay at the club.

The 32-year-old joined the Daggers back in November, 2018 and will now remain with the club as they look to build on the strong finish they had to the 2020/21 National League season.

The central defender began his career at the Daggers, as a youth player, but joined Thurrock after his release from the club in 2006.

Clark became club captain at a young age at Ship Lane in a four-year spell before Chelmsford fought off competition for his signature in the summer of 2011 and he quickly became a fans’ favourite, establishing himself as captain in a side that reached the play-offs.

After two seasons with Chelmsford, where he featured in more than 80 games, he was snapped up by Dartford where he made 31 Conference Premier appearances.
