D’s entertain Maldon on Saturday looking to win for first time in league this year

Dagenham coach Mark Collins is looking forward to seeing an old friend this weekend when Maldon visit in Essex One.

D’s have lost their last seven league encounters, having been forced to rebuild their side in 2015.

But Collins is hoping they can get a strong team out for this Saturday’s home clash.

“My mate Mark Judd has got to bring his Maldon team down this weekend,” he said.

“We played together at Romford & Gidea Park and we nicked a result at their place earlier in the season.

“I’ll see who is about and hopefully we can get a decent side out. Jordan Wigham is missing because he has a double shift, but hopefully we field a good team.”

Although D’s haven’t tasted league success for quite some time, Collins has remained positive and is pleased his team continue to score tries.

He added: “This side hasn’t been put together, it has been thrown together and we are running out of legs in games.

“When that does happen gaps appear, but we are still getting three tries a match and for a team that has been dismantled it is good to still be scoring points.

“We have scored more points against May & Baker than any other team has in the league this season so we are showing we can attack.”

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.
