Dagenham & Redbridge assistant manager Terry Harris feels it was great opportunity to hand some youngsters a chance in their 4-2 friendly defeat to AFC Hornchurch.
Daggers goals came from new signing Noel Leighton and Jack Munns but it wasn’t enough to salvage anything after going four goals down at Bridge Avenue.
“It was a great run and Hornchurch have been really good, really hospitable, they were a strong side and it gave us an ideal opportunity to play players that haven’t really had much game time.
“They’ve done their pre-season, a hard pre-season, but these games you can’t replicate in training so it was excellent for us.
“We’ve got a lot of young lads that have not played at this level and as I said to them Hornchurch are a good side, this is what you’re going to have to come up against on a regular basis.
“I thought everybody put a shift in but this is first game of its kind this season and it’s the first time some of them have played 90 minutes this season so it was an ideal workout for us and I’ve got to thank Hornchurch for that.”
