Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett continues to look at trialists.

Daggers boss Wayne Burnett was pleased with his side’s latest showing in Kent after coming away from Dover 5-0 victors on Saturday.

The Victoria Road outfit where 2-0 up at the break through Jake Reed and Louis Dennis before Josh Scott and trialists Afolabi Obafemi and Bradley Goldberg completed the rout in the second half.

Burnett gave most of his side another hour as they build up towards the start of the new League Two season and came away happy with the performance.

“It was another good workout and most of the players got another 60 minutes game time which is also pleasing,” said Burnett.

“The heat was a factor but that was dealt with well and although it is only pre-season it’s nice to pick up a win.”

Burnett took the chance to look at more trialists in the shape of former Southend midfielder Alex Woodyard and ex-Bristol Rovers winger Ben Swallow.

He added: “One or two have come in and done well and another one or two haven’t done so well. But we will continue to look over our options and there will be more trialists to come in.”

They continue their pre-season campaign with a trip to Ryman Premier side Dulwich Hamlet tonight, before visiting Great Yarmouth Town tomorrow.
