Dedicated to the Cause

Ever wondered where came from or who is behind the site? Here's where you can find out.

Welcome to was launched as part of the Rivals network in Autumn 2001 and is published and maintained by long-term Dagenham & Redbridge supporters, Nelson (Paul Kirkpatrick) and Hardy (Mike Wainwright).

At the end of September 2003, left the Rivals network to become independent and now aims to be the best source for everything you could ever need or want to know about Dagenham & Redbridge Football Club (and quite a lot you didn't!).

If surfing in from an opposition club we recommend the Away Fans Guide for information on visiting Dagenham & Redbridge FC, including prices and information on the ground. Every result of every game the Daggers have played is available at The Archive, including links to match reports for most games played since November 2001. Fixtures and results plus match reports for the current season are at the Fixtures & Results section.

If you are looking for specific information use the Search facility or check the News Index for stories published month by month since the site started.

Look out for developments to the site coming over the next few months.


I previously ran before launching with Hardy in 2001.

I started watching Dagenham FC in the late '70s and have many great memories from the old Dagenham FC era. Not least of these was the FA Trophy win at Wembley in 1980. The FA Cup wins over Peterborough and Swindon also stand out.

Since the merger, things are even better though - the FA Cup match against Orient in '92 was a very special game and I know I will never forget the match at Hampton which clinched us the Isthmian League title in 2000.

My favourite memories though have to be the stunning FA Cup 3rd Round match at Charlton and the 3-0 demolition of Exeter in 2001/02.


After coming back to the Dagenham fold (I'm slowly coming round to the "& Redbridge" bit) a few seasons back and then getting really back into my football after years away playing Hockey, I supplied some input to Nelson's Dagger site, and he asked me to help him out here at when the opportunity arose.

I started watching Dagenham FC in the early '70s, saw them play at Wembley twice, including the win in 1980, and even spent a period working in the Dagger Shop. The first ever pint of beer I bought for myself was a pint of Crown Bitter in the club bar (cost 17p). Yes, I really am that old.

After four vintage seasons the current Daggers are rebuilding and the current side are not setting the world alight at the moment. We still have a great management and coaching team, plus a great team ethic and I am confident our time will come again soon. The recent FA Cup runs have been very special and the game at The Valley is, like Nelson, something I'll never forget. My favourite recent game is though the play off semi final second leg at Morecambe for sheer gut wrenching tension and complete exhilaration at the end.

I hope you enjoy the site.


I first began watching The Daggers with my Dad (SteveMc, strangely enough) in February of 1996 (my first game was against Stalybridge Celtic, we won 4-0, Dave Derry got two, if anyone cares) and was hooked instantly, and saw every home game until the end of the season. I began going to a few away games the following season, which climaxed with the trip to Wembley.

My father and I began producing the Original Unofficial Website in the September of 1997, which ran until the summer of 2001, amassing almost 130,000 hits in that time.

Carrying on from (Sir) Ted Hardy and Garry Hill's legacies, John Still has begun to put together a team with outstanding promise. A mixture of youth and experience, there's no doubt that this was always going to be a rebuilding year, with next year being when this team will have to deliver the goods. And even if it's not with us, I'm sure half a dozen of these players will be playing in the football league before too long.
