Welsh forward moves to Dartford on loan, whilst Northern Ireland under-21 international has move to Ebbsfleet United confirmed

Dagenham & Redbridge have confirmed midfielder Sean Shields has had his contract cancelled by mutual consent, allowing him to complete his move to Conference South outfit Ebbsfleet United.

The Stonbridge Road side announced the signing of the 22-year-old earlier today, but Daggers were still awaiting confirmation from the Football League that Shields contract has been ended six months early.

The club wished Shields all the best in the future and the Northern Ireland under-21 international departs having made 13 appearances during his two year stay at Victoria Road.

Wayne Burnett has also allowed Christian Doidge to join Conference Premier Dartford on a month’s loan.

The 22-year-old has struggled with injuries since joining Daggers from Carmarthen in August and not appeared for them since the 4-2 victory against Carlisle United on November 22.

The Welsh forward will hope to improve his match fitness during his loan with Dartford.
