The signing of Johnson follows on from the signings of George Saunders, Dean Rance, Callum Reynolds and Paul McCallum.

Manager Daryl McMahon said: “Elliott is a very good signing for us. He is a very experienced player for someone of his age. He has played lots of league games and National League matches for Barnet.

“He can play in three positions, which i feel is very important as well, centre-back, left-back and left-wing-back. He will be very valuable addition to our squad.”

Daggers are expected to make more signings in the coming weeks.
