Dagenham & Redbridge have announced the permanent signing of left-back Joe Widdowson on a deal until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old moved to Victoria Road on loan from Bury at the end of November until the start of January.

He has featured three times for Wayne Burnett since - starting in the defeats to Plymouth Argyle and Stevenage, whilst coming off the substitutes bench in the loss at home to Tranmere Rovers.

Widdowson only signed a short-term deal with Bury last summer and after that expired at the start of this month Daggers have been quick to snap up the former West Ham United youngster.

Burnett has openly stated he is a big fan of the defender and he will provide Jack Connors with competition for the left-back spot.

Widdowson’s signing comes a week after it was confirmed Nathan Green had departed the club to join Conference Premier outfit Dartford.

The 22-year-old only moved to Daggers last summer, but has exited Victoria Road on a permanent deal after making just eight appearances for the club.

Burnett said: “We gave Nathan an opportunity and if we had a bit more time I believe we could work with him and make him into a decent player.

“But unfortunately we haven’t got time and the best thing for Nathan is to be playing games so he has left and we wish him all the best.”

Widdowson will be eligible to play for Daggers against Oxford United this weekend.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
