At the end of every season Clubs say goodbye to a number of players whose contracts have come to an end.
Newly installed Daggers manager Wayne Burnett has decided that the following six players will not be offered new contracts when their current deals expire on the 30th June; Striker Sam Williams, midfielders Kevin Maher, Dominic Green and Tom Davie, defenders Andy Burns and Duran Reynolds.
Wayne Burnett said “It was an extremely difficult decision to make but I have a budget to work towards and freeing up these wages will allow me to bring in a couple of my own players for the new season”.
We thank all our departing players for their services to the Club and we wish them the best of luck for the future.
Sam Williams joined the club in August 2011 after his release by Yeovil but two knee injuries have hampered his appearances for the club. He made 16 appearances in his first season and 30 appearances last season scoring eleven goals.
Kevin Maher is another player unlucky with injuries despite missing very few games for his previous two clubs Southend United and Gillingham. He joined the Daggers in August 2011 and suffered two broken metatarsals in his first season. In total Kevin made seventeen appearances for the Daggers.
Dominic Green joined the Daggers in 2007 making his first team breakthrough at the beginning of the 2007/8 season, scoring in his first start against Chester City. Six games into the season he was sold to Peterborough United for a six-figure fee. He went on to make 27 appearances for the London Road side. After being released by the Posh he re-joined the Daggers in September 2011. Dom made ten league appearances in the 2012/13 season.
Tom Davie, Andy Burns and Duran Reynolds all failed to make a competitive first team appearance for the Daggers and spent most of their time at the club out on loan to get experience. It’s hoped that this experience will bode well in the future for these players.
Ben Strevens and Jonathan Fortune have also departed after their short term contracts expired.
