Defender departed last week after failing to agree new deal

Dagenham & Redbridge assistant manager Darren Currie admits he was sad to see defender Josh Staunton depart the Essex club.

The 21-year-old left the National League outfit last week after failing to agree a new contract at Victoria Road and has since moved to divisional rivals Woking.

In his one season with Daggers, Staunton made 34 league appearances, 26 of which came as starts.

With his game time next season likely to be reduced by the arrival of Bondz N’Gala and the return from injury of Luke Pennell, Staunton has moved on.

But Currie was keen to pay tribute to the youngster, who played in a variety of positions for Daggers.

“Josh was a great lad with a brilliant attitude and he was superb to have around the changing room,” said Currie.

“He was a hard worker and whenever he played for us last season, he left it all out on the pitch. He’s decided to move on and it’s his career, but he was brilliant for us.”
