Daggers notch up first win
The Daggers tonight notched up their first win of the 2003/04 pre-season, putting three past Canvey Island for no reply on a bumpy and uneven pitch that you wonder will be fit for football later in the season.

Using a more settled team than on Saturday against West Ham, Garry gave further tests to new-boys, Jimmy Jackson, Mark Bentley, Chris Piper, Leon Braithwaite, Neale Fenn and Alex Meechan. Danny Shipp (left) captained the side on the night.

After a fairly even first half Danny Shipp opened the scoring, a minute before the break from the penalty spot following Ashley Harrison's foul on Leon Braithwaite. Leon should have scored early in the game when through one-on-one with Harrison only to get the ball caught between his legs at the vital moment.

In the second half, Canvey pushed forward looking to equalise only to find James Pullen in good form, the triallist making several good saves.

A rash of late substitutions saw the game open up a little and with five minutes remaining, Mark Janney made no mistake having been put clear by Leon Braithwaite, putting the Daggers 2-0 up.

The scoring was completed in the 89th minute when Alex Meechan (right) scored his first goal in a Daggers shirt, tapping home another great pass from Braithwaite, a desperate lunge by a Canvey defender unable to keep the ball out.

Good performances on the night from Pullen, Bruce and Braithwaite in particular. Neale Fenn worked hard without ever looking like scoring unfortunately, Janney and Meechan making the real difference late in the game.

A serious downside to my evening personally was the abuse given to Leon Brathwaite by a few mindless idiots among the Daggers support which was bordering on racist at times.

You know who you are, stop it now.
