Dagenham and Redbridge are delighted to announce the return to the club of striker Ben Strevens.

The 32 year old attacker is back for his second spell at the club having previously joined in December 2006 from Crawley Town. His arrival sparked a promotion push and the Daggers were subsequently promoted as Conference Champions and into the Football League at the end of the 2006-07 season.

Speaking to Daggers.co.uk, manager John Still is delighted to be reunited with his former player for a third time.

“We wanted to get someone in with a touch more experience, and since Dwight left us we have been short of creativity

“Having played with me at Barnet and here at Dagenham, I know his capabilities and he is the ideal player at this particular moment to come in”

Strevens was a favourite among the Daggers faithful during his first spell and was a highly regarded first team player.

Manager John Still will be looking to rekindle Strevens’ attacking play and goalscoring prowess which earned him rave reviews throughout his time at the club.

Strev’s moved from the Daggers to League One Brentford along with Danny Foster and Sam Saunders in July 2009 and then to Wycombe Wanderers a year later where he helped them to win promotion to League One in his first season.

This season he has played for League Two high fliers Gillingham but returns to the London Borough of Baking & Dagenham Stadium on a contract until the end of the season.

Ben had no hesitation in making up his mind to return to South West Essex when he heard that the Daggers were interested in signing him and wants to help this seasons promotion push.

“I just want to play really. I’ve been with a team who have been top of the table in Gillingham but once I knew what the gaffer wanted to do here, I just wanted to come, get games and hopefully help the club push up the table.”
