National League club confirm talented striker has made switch to Victoria Road for 2016/17 campaign

Dagenham & Redbridge have announced the signing of forward Fejiri Okenabirhie from Ryman Premier side Harrow Borough.

The 20-year-old started his career with the Arsenal academy before moving on to Stevenage, who sent him out on several loan spells.

The attacker moved to Harrow last November, scoring 10 goals in 23 games and attracting the attention of Daggers boss John Still.

“Fejiri was another player that was brought to my attention while I was at Luton by my scouting network,” Still told the club website.

“He can also play wide, he’s quick and strong and we brought him in to Dagenham towards the end of last season to train with us and have a better look at him.

“He impressed me enough for me to offer him a two year contract which I’m happy to say that he signed.”
