Defender capable of playing at right-back and in middle joins until January 5

Dagenham & Redbridge boss Peter Taylor has added to his options in defence by bringing in Colchester United defender Will Wright on loan until January 5.

The 21-year-old is adept at playing at both centre-back and right-back and joined the U’s last summer from Hitchin Town following an impressive campaign in the Evo-Stik South Premier.

Wright becomes Daggers’ seventh signing of the summer as Taylor continues to shape his squad ahead of the new Vanarama National League campaign.

And the boss of the Essex club was pleased to address an area of concern by bringing in another defender.

“I’m delighted to have Will on board. I’ve made no secret that I’ve been looking to get central defenders in,” Taylor told the club website.

“I’d like to thank Colchester United for allowing us to have him on loan until January.

“Will has got all the tools to be a very good centre-half and the plus for us is that he’s a good footballer and a good talker.”
