Former Fulham midfielder joins from Boreham Wood

Dagenham & Redbridge have appointed Junior Lewis as their new assistant manager ahead of the upcoming National League season.

Lewis joins from divisional rivals Boreham Wood and will supplement John Still’s backroom team, which already contains first-team coach Darren Currie and goalkeeping coach Jim Stannard.

After a spell as assistant manager under Dave Hockaday at Leeds United, Lewis moved to Wood as first-team coach in September 2015, before leaving in May.

During his playing career, Lewis, 43, turned out for the likes of Fulham and Leicester City.

Lewis is the third person to move to Victoria Road this summer from Boreham Wood, following players Ben Nunn and Morgan Ferrier.

On joining Daggers, Lewis told the club website: “The manager is why I looked forward to joining the club; his experience of the league means it will be a learning curve to work under him, as well as working with Darren, Jim and the rest of the team.”
