Daggers turn to defender Johnson

VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE side, Dagenham & Redbridge, have confirmed the signing of left-sided defender, Elliott Johnson, from Barnet.

The 25-year-old parted company with the B’s after his contract expired – the player had been with the club throughout his career, appearing 105 times in the EFL and a further 129 appearances at National League level.

Johnson became the Daggers fifth summer signing. Speaking to www.daggers.co.uk boss Daryl McMahon enthused: “Elliott is a very good signing for us. He is a very experienced player for someone of his age. He has played lots of league games and National League matches for Barnet.

“He can play in three positions, which I feel is very important as well, centre-back, left-back and left-wing-back. He will be a very valuable addition to our squad.”
