Former Olympian was on Soccer AM last weekend

Daggers coach Dalton Grant appeared on Soccer AM last Saturday and revealed he had to choose between the Victoria Road club and Championship outfit Fulham during the summer.

The former Olympian joined Wayne Burnett’s coaching staff earlier this season and works closely with the club’s strength and conditioning coach Leon Martin on a part-time basis.

However, he could have ended up using his skills at Craven Cottage.

When asked by presenter Helen Chamberlain how Grant ended up at Daggers, he replied: “People heard about my training and Dagenham Youth Academy coach Micah Hyde spoke to the manager about me.

“I was actually coaching his son and he saw improvement.

“At the time Fulham asked me to coach their under-18s to under-21s, but Dagenham asked me to coach the first-team.

“I thought ‘first team, the experience’ so why not.”
