Dagenham & Redbridge announce trio of new signings

Luton Town youngster Aidan Francis-Clarke, 19, has joined on a season-long loan, having been on the bench for their Premier League clash with West Ham United at Kenilworth Road on Friday night.

He played 11 times on loan for National League South side St Albans last season, netting once, and appeared in their play-off final defeat against Oxford City.

And midfielder Keenan Appiah-Forson, 21, has signed a similar deal to join from east London neighbours West Ham, having been involved in their Europa Conference League campaign last season and faced the Daggers in pre-season.

Completing the trio of new arrivals is midfielder Flynn Clarke, 20, who joins from Championship outfit Norwich City.

Clarke came up through the ranks at Peterborough United, making his debut in the EFL Cup against Cheltenham in September 2020.

His league debut came against Accrington Stanley later that month, before he joined the Canaries for an undisclosed fee in June 2021.

Daggers boss Ben Strevens said: “He’s a player we’ve known about for a while and as soon as we knew it was a possibility we wanted to get him into the club.

“Flynn can cover a load of the attacking areas and we believe he will add goals and assists to the group.

“He’s come here to develop his game and he’s fitted in straight away, so we’re delighted to have him on board with us.”

Daggers go in search of a third successive win this weekend, having beaten then leaders Barnet and Wealdstone in a pair of London derbies over the August Bank Holiday.
