DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE have announced the departure of manager, Peter Taylor, following a winless Vanarama National League run stretching back seven matches.

The Daggers currently sit just two points above the dropzone and were comprehensively beaten 3-0 at Bromley on Saturday – a match which proved to be the one-time England interim bosses last in the Victoria Road hot seat.

A statement posted on www.daggers.co.uk explained: “It is with disappointment that the Board of Dagenham & Redbridge announce that Peter Taylor has left the club with immediate effect.

“The club would firstly like to place on record its sincere thanks to Peter, who stepped in as manager in June 2018 when the club was under extreme pressure, and with his extensive expertise was able to assemble and guide the team.

“With that said, a change is required based on recent results in order to both enable sufficient time for the Board to select a replacement, and for the new manager to start and achieve the aspirations set forth by our investment group.

“Work has commenced on the search process for a new manager, but for the immediate future, day to day team affairs will be handled by Terry Harris and Jody Brown.”
