New Dagenham & Redbridge executive chairman, Peter B. Freund has written a letter explaining why he and the rest of his consortium have chosen to invest in the National League club.

After a few weeks of ongoing talks the American consortium including Freund, who once linked with Aston Villa, Craig Unger and former Premier League goalkeeper Tim Howard have completed the purchase of majority shares in the club.

You can read the letter here:

To All Dagenham & Redbridge Supporters,

When I first visited Victoria Road this summer for a friendly against Cambridge, and having come back for the match against Hartlepool, I was captivated by the incredible passion shown by the Daggers supporters. I consider my ability to come in and help this club, which has roots dating back to the 1880’s, as a privilege and will do everything I can to solidify it this season and give us a chance to return to the Football League in the future. I made a point to meet with Peter Taylor on both occasions and he has my full confidence to lead this club now and into the future.

Along with Craig Unger, who serves as President of our United States Soccer Club, former Premier League goalkeeper and American soccer star Tim Howard and Managing Director, Steve Thompson, I am excited to roll up my sleeves, continue to build on the tradition and history of this club, and create an environment at the ground which generations of supporters will continue to be proud of.

Come On You Daggers!!!

Peter B. Freund
