Dagenham & Redbridge first-team coach Jody Brown is enjoying working alongside manager Peter Taylor and assistant Terry Harris.

The former Heybridge Swifts boss, who guided the Bostik North side to the first round of the FA Cup before crashing to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Exeter City last term, is pleased to be on board with the Daggers.

“I’ve really enjoyed it, it’s great to be working with people like Peter and Terry – they’re very experienced guys,” said Brown.

“It’s a good learning curve for me, but I’m also enjoying working with the players.”

Brown is hoping to not just learn from the experienced Daggers pair, but also have his own input into the management group.

“I’ve been a manager at various levels, but to work under someone like Peter and Terry, they’ve got experiences I haven’t got,” he added.

“Hopefully I can bring something to the team, I don’t want to purely be here to learn, I want to add something to the club.”
