Dagenham & Redbridge were winners at the National League AGM on Saturday night, picking up the Respect and Fair Play award.

The Essex club were honoured for having the best disciplinary record in the league last season.

Over the course of 46 league matches, Daggers had a player sent off just twice, with Scott Doe the guilty party on both occasions.

And managing director Steve Thompson, who was present at the AGM to collect the award, was pleased to see Daggers’ efforts to keep it clean rewarded.

“Winning the fair play award shows what a great footballing side we were last season,” said Thompson.

“It’s often said how physical the game is at this level, and it’s an important part of the game, but the free-flowing style we employed last season helped us win the award as it meant we played fairly.”

At the AGM, Thompson was also re-elected to the National League board.
