DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still has put pen to paper on a new contract that will keep him at Victoria Road until June 2014.

The 59-year-old has been in charge of the club since April 2004 and is the sixth longest serving manager in the Football League, behind Sir Alex Ferguson (Manchester United), Arsene Wenger (Arsenal), John Coleman (Accrington Stanley), David Moyes (Everton) and Steve Tilson (Southend United).

Still has overseen Daggers' rise from the Conference into the Football League, and has seen the club firmly entrenched in the promotion race this season, as they are currently second in the table.
