DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE have awarded youth team player Billy Bingham a contract until the end of 2010, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.

The youngster, who plays in central midfield, began his career at Crystal Palace, but although he featured for the reserves, he didn't break into the first team at Selhurst Park.

Bingham turned out for Daggers in their 2-0 Essex Senior Cup defeat at Chelmsford City in January, and manager John Still is hoping his career progresses at Victoria Road.

"Billy has done quite well, so we are going to have a look at him for a year as we've done with a few of our young players," said the boss, who confirmed he would send Bingham out on loan to gain experience.
