League Two club have also been involved with various charitable causes recently

Dagenham & Redbridge may be without a competitive match this weekend, but manager Wayne Burnett won’t be having a rest.

The Victoria Road boss will instead be hoping to make the trip to the Kassam Stadium this afternoon to watch Oxford United face Tranmere Rovers, who Daggers take on next on December 13.

He also confirmed an in-house match is likely to take place today to give players more minutes.

“I will be going to watch Oxford to watch Tranmere. I noticed that on Monday,” Burnett said earlier this week.

“We are going to have an in house game as well. I am not sure what time or where, but we will do that.”

Although Daggers don’t have a fixture this weekend, the annual Santathon will take place tomorrow (Sunday).

In 2013 nearly 550 people participated in the event, dressed as Santa, and helped raise over £10,00 for charity.

Burnett ran last year with first-team coach Darren Currie and has hailed the continued charitable work the club is involved in.

He added: “I am going to be there, but I am not sure about how much I will do or how much I will take part in.

“Last year myself, Darren and a few players took part. I can’t remember exactly how much we rose, but it would be nice to raise more for a good cause.

“The club are very community orientated. We realise the importance it has for a club like us and we are always more than happy to help.”

Daggers were also heavily involved in helping promote club sponsor West & Coe Funeral Director’s in their quest to raise £10,000 for Movember.

Various members of the squad at Victoria Road took part, as did their manager, and West & Coe were able to raise over £15,000.

“It is a fantastic cause and we are more than happy to participate and help out our club sponsor,” commented Burnett.

“It is all about putting the awareness out about how important it is.

“We helped raise a bit of money and the awareness so we are pleased with that.”
