Longe-King links up with the East Londoners on a two-year deal. Previously, the player also represented St Albans City, Newport County as well as a loan spell at Woking.

Speaking to www.daggers.co.uk, Daggers boss, Daryl McMahon enthused: “We’re absolutely delighted to sign David and have him on board ahead of the upcoming season.

“He’s someone we’ve looked at for a long time, from back when he was at St Albans. He’s a big imposing centre-back who stands at 6’4, he’s aerially good and obviously physically impressive but can also play with the ball at his feet.

“David was really hungry to come back down to London to join us, and we feel like he’ll be a really big asset for us moving forward into this new campaign.”
