DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE midfielder Glen Southam has left the club after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
The 28-year-old joined Daggers from Bishop's Stortford in 2004 and made 229 appearances, second only behind Tony Roberts in the current squad, scoring 28 goals.
He made 35 appearances this season in all competition, but found that the majority of them were from the bench as Peter Gain and Solomon Taiwo forged an effective midfield partnership.
After leaving Victoria Round, Southam said: "I have had an amazing fives years with Dagenham & Redbridge which have given me the happiest memories of my football career to date and I will be sad to be leaving, but I feel that at this stage in my career, I need a fresh challenge.

Meanwhile, manager John Still added: "Glen has been an integral part in the rise of this club, he was my first signing and should always be remembered for the part he played in the success we have enjoyed and I wish him well wherever he may go."
