THE PFA League Two team of the year was announced on Sunday, and it was a massive surprise when there were no Dagenham & Redbridge players involved, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.

The likes of Sam Saunders, Paul Benson and Ben Strevens have all been overlooked despite the club staying in League Two last year, and spending all of the this season in and around the play-off places.

With their miniscule playing budget, it is some achievement for Daggers to even be plying their trade at this level, but that hasn't been recognised.

Manager John Still should be in contention for the manager of the year award at the end of the season, along with the likes of Morecambe's Sammy McIllroy and Exeter's Paul Tisdale, but don't be surprised if that goes to Brentford's Andy Scott.
