Gone but not forgotten

Okenabirhie Moves to Shrewsbury
by Hardy on 11/06/2018

The Daggers announced on Sunday that Fejiri Okenabirhie has been sold to Shrewsbury Town as the club look to ease the current financial crisis.

Fejiri moves on

Following the positive reaction to the appointment of Peter Taylor and Terry Harris last week, it was with heavy hearts that Daggers fans learned that Fejiri Okenabirhie had been sold to Shrewsbury Town for an undisclosed fee, which was announced on Sunday (here).

The 22-year-old England C forward joined Shrewsbury on a two-year deal having scored 19 goals in 68 appearances for the Daggers over the last two seasons. While missing injured for the beginning of 2017/18, Fey was the undoubted star turn of the second half of the season when the pressure came on due to the mess off the field, and was voted third place in the Daggers player of the year poll.

DiggerDagger would like to wish Fey all the best for the future.

While inevitable, the move highlights the Daggers plight. All the contracted players are available for trnasfer, and it seems likely that several others will leave before the new season.

When interviewed after his appointment, new Daggers Manager Peter Taylor stated that he was looking to use his contacts in football to bring in new players, and it seems likely that the Daggers will be making significant use of the loan system in 2018/19.

The official club interview can be seen here, and Taylor also gave an interview to the Time FM Sports Show on Thursday 7th June which can be downloaded from here.

Club Finances - Where are we?

The club is still actively seeking an investor to replace the income lost when Glyn Hopkin pulled out, which will obviously change everything, while planning in case it doesn't happen.

Steve Thompson stated at the fans meeting on the 17th May 2018 that the decision to press on into 2018/19 had been taken after a very careful budgeting process to ensure the club had a chance to survive.

DiggerDagger understands that this budget included the MD taking a pay cut, the release of Manager, and biggest single wage at the club, John Still, and the sale of some contracted players based on estimated values for these transfers.

In addition, season ticket prices were increased for the coming season, and Full Membership of the football club has been opened, at a cost of 100 per annum. This will hopefully increase fan involvement in the club going forward as memebrship has somewhat stagnated over recent years. Membership forms can be downloaded here.

The club is also looking for donations of 150,000 to help keep the club above water. Last week donations from supporters the club's own fans and football supporters around the world had reached a promising 42,000, but more is needed to ensure the club can survive the season.

Donations can be made at the club site here.
