RUFC - Head-to-Head v Dagenham and Redbridge

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Dagenham and Redbridge
Well, there really aren`t any stats as we have only ever met them once before and that was earlier this season at London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium - known as Victoria Road. The Millers won 2-0 with both goals coming from Danny Harrison.

Dagenham and Redbridge was formed when two clubs, Redbridge Forest and Dagenham Football Club, merged in 1992 and things went OK for the first couple of seasons. In 1994/95 season, manager, John Sills, left to join Peterborough and it was found that one of the Trustees had illegally removed half a million pounds, which he was later convicted of, and the club were relegated to the Isthmian League. Ted Hardy was the manager and they finished a credible fourth in their first season in the Isthmian League. In 1997/98 the club broke their transfer record when they bought Paul Cobb from Purfleet for 15,000 and they won the Essex Senior Cup and when Ted Hardy resigned in 1999 he left the club in a much healthier position than he had found it. Gary Hill came in as manager and in 200/01 the club made headlines when they firstly beat Lincoln City in the FA Cup and drew with Premiership side Charlton Athletic in the next round before losing 1-0 in extra time of the replay. The next two seasons saw the Daggers missed out twice on promotion to the Football League and in 2004/05, they had their worst season ever and Garry Hill resigned after a 0-9 thumping by Hereford at home and John Sill found himself back as manager for the final game of the season. In 2006/07 The Daggers were the Nationwide Conference Champions
