Pre-season friendly: Dulwich Hamlet 2 Dagenham & Redbridge 1

Daggers manager Wayne Burnett was frustrated by his side’s second half showing as they lost out to Dulwich Hamlet last night.

Josh Scott fired the visitors into the lead in a first half they dominated but a poor second half saw the Ryman Premier hosts secure victory with goals from Paul Vines and Jerome Taylor.

And Burnett felt his side were a bit “leggy” in the second period but isn’t overly concerned by the defeat.

“We played okay in the first half and not so great in the second,” said Burnett.

“As I have said before I am not too concerned with any result in pre-season, the more important thing is the performance.

“But we did look a bit leggy in the second half and that is disappointing.”

The Daggers chief continues to look over trialists, and this time had the opportunity to look at goalkeeper Tommy Forecast and midfielder David Wheeler.

They are set to get a second chance at Dartford on Saturday, while Bradley Goldberg and Alex Woodyard, both unused substitutes last night will feature at Great Yarmouth tonight.

Dagenham & Redbridge: Lewington (Forecast 60), Ogogo, Ilesanmi (Connors 60), Doe (Santos 60), Hoyte, Howell (Gayle 60), Louis Dennis (Shields 42), Elito, Scott, Obafemi, Wheeler.

Unused substitutes: Goldberg, Woodyard.
