The departure of Scott Griffiths has long been mooted ever since he burst onto the scene as a teenager in 2004. A young lad plucked from the obscurity of Aveley, he has become probably the finest left-back in League Two under the watchful eye of John Still and his staff. Finally the speculation can end with news of his loan and impending transfer to, predictably, Peterborough.
Last weekend’s game against Darlington was perhaps one of the simplest games the Daggers have had since getting into the Football League. Over the last few years, Darlo have been one of the bigger names in the division, regularly troubling the top of the table. So just what has gone wrong at the Quakers?
This week Gary Waddock swapped the comfort of his job at Aldershot for Wycombe, just one division higher. Waddock brought the Shots up from the Conference and they currently sit 6th in League Two, whereas Wycombe have the worst record in League One.
Is he making a big mistake? Here we take a look at his move and dig out five other cases of managers attempting to further their careers, only to fall flat on their faces.
October is here and the Christmas lights are already being put up across the land, but more importantly we’re a quarter of the way through the league season. It seems appropriate now to draw breath and take a look at how the new signings have performed since their arrival at Victoria Road this summer.
A record that reads five league titles, four Wembley finals and a trophy haul well into double figures. Whilst most football fans won’t have a clue who the owner of this record is, any Dagger who knows their history will be fully aware. He led the Daggers in three spells as part of a career that spanned four decades and will surely go down in history as one of the finest managers the game has seen. It is of course, Mr Ted Hardy.
