Boss Wayne Burnett felt youngster looked bright, whilst midfielder thanked St Albans City

Sean Shields returned from his three-month loan with St Albans City yesterday and was immediately thrust into the action in Dagenham & Redbridge’s Essex Senior Cup fourth round tie against Waltham Abbey.

The 22-year-old played the full 90 minutes at Victoria Road against the Ryman North outfit and imposed himself on the match as it progressed.

First-team coach Darren Currie was in constant communication with Shields during the opening stages of the match but the midfielder impressed during the 2-1 victory and nearly scored late on.

Manager Wayne Burnett felt Shields looked lively during the cup match, he said: “He has gone out to get some games and that is what he has done. He looks bright and sharp.

“He has not been too well of late but he’ll be in the group and we will have a look at him and see how he does.”

Shields enjoyed success on his return to Clarence Park and scored five times in 16 appearances for the Saints.

The Daggers youngster moved to Victoria Road in January 2013 from St Albans City.

He tweeted that he enjoyed his three-month stay with his former club after signing off in style by scoring a late winner during the weekend win over Havant & Waterlooville in the Conference South.

@SShields10 tweeted on Saturday: “Came to the end of my 3 month loan spell today and no better way to sign off than to score the winning goal late on.

“Met some great people and want to thank everyone at the club for how they welcomed me and how enjoyable they made the experience.

“All the best for the rest of the season to all the staff, players and supporters.

“Some great memories have been made during my time here and I will always look back with fondness #Saints.”
