Burnett happy with first outing
Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett will continue running the rule over new players following his side’s 4-0 win at Whitstable in their opening pre-season friendly.
Goals from Louis Dennis, Bradley Goldberg and Ian Gayle, plus a penalty by Medy Elito, saw the visitors cruise to victory in the Kent sunshine.
Former Charlton trainee Goldberg was one of four trialists on show as Burnett gave run-outs to 22 players during the game.
Tyrone Sterling, former Orient striker Afolabi Obafemi and Tyler Christian-Law failed to convince the Daggers boss but Goldberg has another chance to impress at training this week and there could be more new faces on the way.
Burnett said: “It was a very good work-out for us. I managed to give virtually everybody 45 minutes of action and it was a very competitive game.
“Bradley will continue to train with us and could possibly figure in our next game at Dover on Saturday.
“He did well and got on the scoresheet, so what more can you do?
“But the other three trialists have been allowed to go.
“We’ve identified four or five players we’d like to see come in, so I’m hoping for some new arrivals over the next few weeks or so.
“I’m not sure when that will be, but things can change very quickly.”
Daggers visit Dover on Saturday before heading to Dulwich Hamlet on Tuesday evening.
