Pre-season encounter could see return of ex-loan star

Former Dagenham & Redbridge loanee Ayo Obileye could make a swift return to Victoria Road after it was announced the east Londoners would host Charlton Athletic in a friendly.

The two sides will meet at Victoria Road on July 22, with kick off at 7.30pm.

Obileye made 26 appearances for the Daggers last season before returning to the Addicks, where he signed a new contract earlier in the summer.

Other players to have turned out for both clubs include forward Paul Benson and winger Danny Green.

The sides last met in a friendly at Dagenham’s home two years ago, with the Championship team coming out on top in a 2-0 win.

But when Daggers last played Addicks in a competitive fixture, it was the Victoria Road outfit who triumphed 2-1 thanks to goals from Jon Nurse and Green.
