Will Wright is developing at a ‘rapid rate’ insists Dagenham & Redbridge manager Daryl McMahon after his impressive start to the new season. 

The 24-year-old has netted three times and picked up a further three assists from centre-back in the opening six fixtures of the National League. 

Dagenham sit top of the table and Wright has captained the side in most of those games since Angelo Balanta went off injured on the opening day of the season.

Wright netted a brace in their latest 4-2 victory over Weymouth to help guide the Daggers to victory after trailing 2-1 at half-time. 

“Will is very good on the ball, we know that, he’s a danger from set-pieces. The first goal was a terrific finish as it was falling to him you just hoped that he kept him down as he can strike through the ball really well,” McMahon said.
