The time has come for Dagenham & Redbridge to announce their retained list, while the Daggers are also set for non-league tests in pre-season.

Of the nine that are out of contract at the end of June, Zavon Hines, Bradley Goldberg, Gavin Hoyte and Ian Gayle have all been offered new contracts at Victoria Road.

Bar a three-match ban for a sending off against Southend United in the 5-2 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win, Hoyte had been an ever-present for the Daggers and a consistent season has now seem him offered terms, while Hines is also considering a deal despite being out with a knee injury, which could keep him out of the start of next season.

Goldberg has impressed while out on loan with Conference South side Bromley, and finished the campaign as the top goalscorer in the league, and he’s been given a chance to force his way into manager Wayne Burnett’s plans for the 2014-15 season. Ian Gayle also spent a large chunk of the season out on loan to Grays Athletic, but rose to prominence after Scott Doe’s sending off against Wycombe Wanderers.

The club will continue discussions with goalkeeper Jordan Seabright and striker Afolabi Obafemi.

On top of last week’s announcements that Chris Lewington, Femi Ilesanmi and Alex Osborn will all depart, Chris Dickson will also be leaving the club at the end of his current deal.

A club statement read: “All four players have been released from the club. We would like to thank them for their contribution to this season, and wish them all the luck in their future careers.”

The news on Dickson had been expected, after the former Ghana international endured a tough time with the club. He netted just twice in 28 appearances, 23 of them coming off the bench since joining in October.

Meanwhile, Ebbsfleet United and Billericay Town have announced friendly dates against the Daggers next season.

Wayne Burnett’s side will travel to Stonebridge Road to face Ebbsfleet, the Conference South play-off finalists on Saturday, July 19, with a 3pm kick-off.

The Daggers are on the road again when they head to New Lodge to face Ryman Premier side Billericay Town on July 30, 7.45pm kick-off,
