Former Fulham stopper leaves after five years on coaching staff at Victoria Road

Jim Stannard has left his role as Dagenham & Redbridge goalkeeping coach to take up the same post at Vanarama National League rivals Bromley.

Stannard initially joined Daggers in the summer of 2013 when then manager Wayne Burnett brought the former Fulham stopper to the club.

Owing to Daggers’ financial difficulty earlier this year, Stannard was made redundant before returning on a part-time basis.

The lure of full-time work with Bromley, however, proved too good to turn down, and Daggers boss Peter Taylor paid tribute to Stannard following his departure.

“Bromley could offer Jim a full-time contract and we couldn’t, so we understand why Jim left.

“Jim’s a Dagenham supporter and he’s a Dagenham man; he did brilliantly for the football club, but we couldn’t stand in his way.

“The Bromley job offered him a bit more security and he goes with our best wishes. I thank him for all the work he did at Dagenham.

It is believed former Gillingham goalkeeper coach Glen Johnson will replace Stannard at Daggers.
