'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dagenham Roundup

A 50th appearance, a 100th appearance, and MBE and Johnstone's Paint Trophy details.

Defender Luke Wilkinson has talked to the Official Site having made his 50th appearances for Dagenham and Redbridge in our last game against Cheltenham.

The player joined us from Portsmouth on a three year deal back in 2010, making his debut for us against Southend in September 2012.

Such was his progress that he was named our Player of the Season back in the 2012-13 campaign.

'It's great to make the first milestone and hopefully there will be many more.'

As for the game, he admits the performance against Cheltenham wasn't our best, but we are a young squad, we are learning all the time and he feels fans can more than see improvements compared to last season, so it's a case of constantly striving to continue to improve and push ourselves further up the table - although obviously there will be hiccups along the way.

Luke wasn't the only one celebrating a milestone against Cheltenham, and Medy Elito also wished the result could've been more favourable to recognise his own achievement as well.

Medy was making his 100th for Dagenham, both including the appearances made since he joined us on a permanent deal, but also the loan spell he spent with the club back in the 2010-11 season.

The player admitted that until he was told about the milestone he wasn't aware he'd played that many games for us, but obviously he was delighted to have made the 100 mark.

Managing Director Steve Thompson has also been honoured with an MBE.

Finally, our the full details of our Johnstone's Paint Trophy Area Quarter Final against Peterborough have now been confirmed.

The match will take place at their London Road Stadium on Tuesday November 12th and will kick off at 7.30pm.

Prices are still to be announced.
