Dagenham & Redbridge have completed the signing of midfielder Bradley Goldberg on a one-year deal, and immediately sent him out on loan.
Goldberg featured in pre-season for the Daggers and scored in 4-0 and 5-0 pre-season wins over Whitstable Town and Dover Athletic respectively.
But now Dagenham boss Wayne Burnett has offered to give the former Charlton Athletic youngster a crack at professional football once again.
However, he will spend the season on loan at Conference South side Bromley, who are managed by his father and former Crystal Palace owner Mark.
The midfielder rose to prominence last season in Hastings United’s FA Cup run to the third round, scoring at Middlesborough in their 4-1 defeat, and despite that success he couldn’t help keep the Arrows from Ryman Premier relegation.
Daggers have also re-signed striker Alex Osborn on a one-year deal, and he will spend the 2013-14 season at another Conference South side in the shape of Ebbsfleet United.
Osborn has spent the last three seasons at the club after joining from Grays Athletic but the majority of his spell with the Daggers has seen him out on loan at the likes of Billericay Town, Thurrock and Chelmsford City.
His contract ran out in the summer but has impressed boss Wayne Burnett in pre-season and a deal to extend his stay was quickly arranged.
On both players, Burnett said: “I am delighted to have signed both boys. Alex has worked extremely hard in his time here. Bradley is a player who has caught our eye during pre-season. Both will now spend time out on loan to gain first team experience”.
