Dagenham & Redbridge have this afternoon announced the news that manager Peter Taylor leaves with immediate effect.
It comes after yesterday’s 3-0 defeat away to Bromley, meaning they continued a poor run of results that left them just outside the National League relegation zone.
After 18 months in charge Daggers sit 18th with 31 points after 28 games – despite plenty of investment on a new-look squad in the summer under the boss.
THE CLUB STATEMENT:
“It is with disappointment that the Board of Dagenham & Redbridge announce that Peter Taylor has left the club with immediate effect.
“The club would firstly like to place on record its sincere thanks to Peter, who stepped in as manager in June 2018 when the club was under extreme pressure, and with his extensive expertise was able to assemble and guide the team.
“With that said, a change is required based on recent results in order to both enable sufficient time for the Board to select a replacement, and for the new manager to start and achieve the aspirations set forth by our investment group.
“Work has commenced on the search process for a new manager, but for the immediate future, day to day team affairs will be handled by Terry Harris and Jody Brown.”
