Four first team players leave Victoria Road but Seabright stays.

It will be a summer of change once again at Dagenham & Redbridge as the club announce all but one of their out of contract players will be leaving the Victoria Road ranks.

Boss Wayne Burnett will be working within a tight budget and that means Sam Williams, Ben Strevens, Dominic Green and Kevin Maher will all end their spells at the club.

The only one who is set to stay with the club is young goalkeeper Jordan Seabright, while left-sided academy player Jack Connors has also been offered a one-year deal.

Although Burnett would have loved to work alongside one or two of the released players, he admitted budget dictated that all were released.

“I have had a word with all of the players, both those who are out of contract and those that aren’t,” said Burnett.

“I would have loved to have kept one or two of them, but the finances dictate what I can do.”

There had been speculation that Williams had turned down a new deal at Victoria Road but contrary to those reports, a contract had not been offered by the club.

Meanwhile Jonathan Fortune’s short-term deal will not be extended, as youngsters Duran Reynolds, Andy Burns, Tom Davie have also seen their time at Victoria Road come to an end.
