Daggers boss rewarded for unbeaten start to the new campaign

Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still has been named National League manager of the month for August.

In the opening month of the season, Still has guided Daggers to wins over Barrow, Boreham Wood and Bromley.

In that time, the Essex club have also played out draws with Eastleigh, Ebbfleet United, Fylde and Maidstone United to sit second in the table, two points behind early leaders Sutton United.

However, the Victoria Road side have only kept one clean sheet over that run of seven games, which came earlier this week at Maidstone on Bank Holiday Monday.

Still will hope to avoid the dread ‘curse’ that usually follows winning the award when Daggers host Gateshead on Saturday afternoon.

The player of the month award went to Solihull Moors keeper Nathan Vaughan, despite not keeping a clean sheet in his three games this term, though did score in his side’s win at Torquay United.
