In the first match of the Bank Holiday double-header, Daggers will face a Ravens side that contains no less than four players who have previously donned the red and blue of the Essex club.

Frankie Raymond is the most recent former Daggers player to make the switch to Hayes Lane, having done so in the summer after being released from John Still’s side.

The 24-year-old initially joined Daggers from Eastbourne Borough in the summer of 2014 and went on to make over 50 appearances in all competitions for the club.

Last season saw Raymond feature regularly, though he was often deployed at left-back rather than his favoured role in central midfield.

The former Reading trainee’s contract with Daggers expired in the summer, and with his deal not being renewed, he made the short switch to Bromley.

There, he joined the likes of Louis Dennis, George Porter and Frankie Sutherland – all of whom played for Daggers in the past.

Striker Dennis, an academy graduate, made eight league appearances before being released in the summer of 2014, while Porter had a brief spell at Victoria Road in the 2014-15 season, and Sutherland was a loanee the following campaign.

Daggers will hope none of that quartet mark their return to RM7 with a goal this weekend as Still’s boys search for a first win in four matches.

On Monday, the short trip to Maidstone, Still’s former club, brings a reunion with Zavon Hines.

The Jamaica international is a recent signing for Stones, but had a three-year stint, that was disrupted by injury, with Daggers earlier in his career.

Hines joined fellow former Daggers Magnus Okuonghae, Stuart Lewis and Seth Twumasi in making the move to the Gallagher Stadium.

New Daggers loanee Kevin Lokko will also come up against familiar faces on Monday have played for Jay Saunders’ side last term.

Hopefully it is defender Lokko who is smiling come Monday, having helped secured a good result for his new club at his old team.
