DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still has started his summer clear-out by releasing five players from the squad, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
Jon Boardman, Richard Graham, Jacob Erskine, Michael Alaile and Richard Priest have all been allowed to leave Victoria Road after their contracts expired.
Boardman's departure had been on the cards for a while after he made just one appearance this season due to injury and he has now signed a deal with former club Woking.
"Jon had a season that was ruined by injury, and I just couldn't commit myself," said Still about the centre half who played 43 games in total for Daggers, scoring three goals.

Winger Graham was also another who had been expected to leave as the former Barnet man spent the second half of the season on loan at Blue Square Premier side Kettering Town.
"Richard is another who has moved on and I wish him all the best," said Still.

Erskine, Alaile and Priest never featured for Daggers in a first-team game, but it will give the likes of Harlee Dean and Tommy Tejan-Sie the chance to force themselves into the reckoning.
