Dagenham & Redbridge is the product of a seemingly endless succession of mergers and amalgamations. The club as currently constituted was formed on the 1st July 1992 following the merger of Dagenham FC and Redbridge Forest football clubs. The latter was also a merged club, with the likes of Ilford, Leytonstone, Leytonstone & Ilford and Walthamstow Avenue all having been swallowed up into the club that we know today.

The merged Dagenham and Redbridge club were quite a force for the first two seasons, finishing third and sixth under John Still, but then the rot set in when Still left for the League, and two seasons later in 1995-96 they finished last and were relegated to the Isthmian.

It took the Daggers four years to get back, during which time they had a losing appearance at Wembley to look back on and reached the Second Round of the F.A. Cup for the first time. They finished fourth, fourth and third in the Ryman Premier but it wasn't until the arrival of Garry Hill in the summer of 1999 that they put it all together and regained their Conference status. Dagenham took the top spot in September and held it for the whole season, winning the title by twenty-four points and equalling Yeovil's achievement of 101 points in 1996-97.

Storming the feeders doesn't always guarantee success at the higher level but Dagenham coped well with the transition and finished a highly creditable 3rd in their first season back (behind Yeovil and Rushden) as well as taking Premiership club Charlton Athletic to a replay in the Third Round of the F.A. Cup.

The 2001-02 season was a significant one for the club. By now a major force in the Conference under Hill, they ended up locked in a two horse race for the Conference title, and a real prospect of them entering the Football League, and around the turn of the year brought in players like Ken Charlery with the experience and know-how to add to the likes of Mark Stein in their forward line. Sadly for them and the rest of the Conference, not forgetting the good name of football throughout the country, another team wanted League football as well, and were prepared to cheat and break the rules to get it. Boston United, led by Steve Evans - probably the most disliked manager in the English game since Don Revie, finished top of the league on goal difference to the Daggers and were subsequently promoted despite admitting to and being found guilty of cheating - a travesty of justice and a huge blow to fair play and to Dagenham in particular.

The year that Yeovil Town went up into the Football League, in 2002-03, the Daggers suffered yet more heartache, as they were losing finalists at the Brittania Stadium to Doncaster Rovers. Losing out twice by such a narrow margin hurt them badly, and for the following three seasons, they spent it in mid-table wilderness. The February 2004 televised match against Hereford United saw them lose 0-9 at home - Hill quit for Hornchurch shortly afterwards and it seemed their time had gone forever, with momentum badly lost.

However, they were to have a second ressurection only a few years later. John Still returned to Victoria Road as Hill's replacement in April 2004, and in 2006-07 they edged past the bookies favourites Oxford United to grab the Conference title. The team they replaced in the Football League, to the huge satisfaction of almost every Conference team supporter, was ... Boston United. As John Lennon once said, Instant Karma's gonna get you. Well it may not have been quite instant, but karma it was, with the Cheats kicked down to Conference North (and eventually the Northern Premier Division the following year) and the Daggers gaining one of the most deserved Football League positions - albeit five years after the Football Association bottled their duty to maintain the integrity of the game.

Most would have assumed that, given the size of the club, we'd be seeing the Daggers settling in with the Macclesfields and Barnets of this world as a quiet do-nothing League Two side. But John Still was a canny bloke, and a bit of a Daggers institution, having managed them between 1989-1994 and 2004-2013 (he later returned between 2015-2018), along with a playing career at the old Dagenham club, and management spells with the Daggers predecessors Leytonstone, Leytonstone & Ilford and Redbridge Forest at various times. His place in the various clubs histories was cemented even further when they beat Rotherham United in the 2009-10 League Two play-off final to reach the dizzy heights of League One.

Dagenham's 2010-11 season thus became the club's historic pinnacle - third tier football for the first time in their club's history. That was to only last one season, but not without an impressive fight. Relegated in 21st place, it shouldn't be forgotten that they managed to finish above Bristol Rovers, Plymouth Argyle and Swindon Town that season. After that point they began to occupy the lower end of League Two, albeit by still staying above the line. Their 2013-14 campaign saw them finish a creditable 9th, but otherwise finishes of 19th, 22nd and 14th were causing concerns.

They eventually dropped at the end of the 2015-16 season and Yeovil Town played a part in that, given that we were one of the teams occupying the wrong end of the table, ultimately climbing above them, to ensure that they and York City went down, ending a nine year stay in the Football League.

Since that point, Dagenham's standing has slipped a bit. Perhaps in line with their ability to claim parachute payments in their first two years back in non-league football, things were not too bad, with them achieving a 4th place finish (losing to Forest Green Rovers in the play-offs) followed by 11th. But then without the parachute money, they slipped down to 18th for the 2018-19 season and the inevitable difficulty for them now must be to stop that trend continuing.

Ticket Prices :

During our Football League meetings, away supporters were housed in the West Stand (also known as the Pondfield Road Stand) , which is a relatively new development at Victoria Road. The capacity of this stand is 1,224. In the National League, they operate a different policy, with the West Stand in principle allocated to home supporters, whilst away fans are given the section of the North Terrace that is nearest to that end of the ground with anyone needing to sit mixed in with home fans in the West Stand.

For larger away followings (where over 600 are expected) or where their Safety Officer believes the game requires segregation, all away fans are moved into the West Stand, as per our Football League days, with all West Stand home fans moved into the Carling Stand on the East side of the ground.

For our 2019-20 visit we are just being given the West Stand. Prices are as follows:

West Stand Seated: Adults: £21.00; Concessions: £15.00; Aged 10-16: £12.00; Under-10s: £2.00.

Note that if you are buying the Under-10s tickets, you must do so with an Adult or Concessions ticket.

Concessions are for Over-65s and Students carrying valid ID.

Note that tickets will come off sale on Friday 23rd August 2019 so the Huish Park Ticket Office can return them in time for sales on the day of the Bank Holiday Monday fixture. Hence tickets won't be available at the Maidenhead United game on the Saturday (24th August).

NOT relevant to our 2019-20 visit - but clubs that are given the North Terrace gain admission to the following rates:

North Terrace Standing: Adults: £15.00; Concessions: £10.00; Aged 10-16: £8.00; Under-10s: FREE.

Disabled Info:
Disabled supporters have designated wheelchair spaces situated in front of the West Stand - there are 12 spaces. For any special arrangements, contact Dagenham's Ticket Office on 020 8592 1549 ext 21 or by emailing tickets@daggers.co.uk - if you need a wheelchair space then you must purchase your ticket and space from the Dagenham end, via their ticket office. For ambulant disabled supporters will pay the relevant price band as above.

Dagenham accept any of the following as proof of entitlement: Receipt of the middle or higher rate of the Disability Living Allowance, Receipt of either the Severe Disablement Allowance or Attendance Allowance, or a personal letter from your GP. Wheelchair supporters can admit an assistant free of charge.

General

Victoria Road is not the easiest place to drive to - right on the far side of London if you're travelling from Yeovil, so whether you do the M25, North Circular or whatever, then give yourself a generous amount of time ......... then double it.

By Road

The best way to get to the ground by car is to get onto the A13.

From the North (M25 clockwise):

If you are coming from the North use the M25 and follow it round until you reach the M11 (Junction 27). Proceed towards London and follow the signs A406 (S), (A13), (A12). Continue on the A406 and follow signs North Circular, Docklands (A13).
After the Barking, East Ham turn off get into the left hand lane. And follow the signs for Dagenham, Tilbury, Southend, Dartford Tunnel. This will bring you onto the A13.

As you approach Dagenham you will see a leisure complex on your left. This complex consists of Mecca Bingo, a Warner Cinema complex and various restaurants (Spoofers, McDonalds etc). Stay in the left lane and follow signs to the A1306 signed Dagenham, Dagenham East. (Do not continue on the A13 which actually starts to elevate at this point otherwise you will end up visiting Sarfend - actually you can rescue yourself by getting of at the first turn-off, which is also signposted Dagenham East, but from there you're on your own.)

When you reach the next set of lights you will see an ASDA on the right (these lights only give you an option to go straight ahead or turn right). Go straight on. About a 100 yards further past there is a Drive thru' Wimpy which is within a small retail park together with a Sainsbury's Homebase, Halfords etc.

Then, within a 100 yards, there is a set of major lights, go straight over these and within about 600 yards you will see another set of lights and McDonalds on your left. Turn left immediately before McDonalds.

This is Ballards Road. Proceed to The Bull roundabout, which is about 1 mile, and turn left. (WARNING! The speed limit at the Bull end of Ballards Road is 30mph and there is a speed camera there.) After about 500 yards you will see Dagenham East tube station on the left, and Victoria Road is about 400 yards further past.

From the South (M25 anti-clockwise) :

You will need to cross the Thames at Dartford. Leave the M25 for the A13 at Junction 30 following the signs for Central London and Dagenham. Proceed along this road and you will see signs for the Ferry Lane Industrial Estate. Don't take this turn, but this is your cue to get into the left hand lane. Take the next slip road off, signposted Elm Park and Dagenham East, and turn right at the roundabout at the bottom of the slip road.

You will now be going under the road that you have just left and need to go straight over the next roundabout. Proceed to the set of lights and turn left onto the dual-carriageway (still the A13). After about half a mile you will see a McDonalds on your right. Get into the right hand filter lane and turn right just past it.

This is Ballards Road. Proceed to The Bull roundabout, which is about 1 mile, and turn left. (WARNING! The speed limit at the Bull end of Ballards Road is 30mph and there is a speed camera there.) After about 500 yards you will see Dagenham East tube station on the left, and Victoria Road is about 400 yards further past.

Parking :
Dagenham's car park used to be available on a first-come, first-served basis, but this is now only available via prior booking. There are a number of designated disabled spaces that can be reserved if you're a Blue Badge holder. Otherwise, it's a case of finding a side street to park on. The best place for away fans is Pondfield Road on the opposite side of the main club entrances, where you can walk across Pondfield Park and straight into the away end. Obviously the later you arrive at the ground, the harder it will become for you to get something close to the ground. Do not be tempted to park on the pavements - particularly in Bury Road - unless you like collecting big yellow clamping equipment. Do not block driveways or access paths.

By Tube/Train

Most supporters travelling in by train will head in via the Yeovil Junction service that runs into Waterloo. When you're travelling to Dagenham in the morning, from Waterloo you can take the Waterloo and City line and then change at Bank Station to get on the Central Line Eastbound. You can then change at Mile End to get onto the District Line. Note that the Waterloo and City Line is closed on a Sunday, so if you're making a weekend of it, you may need a different route coming back.

The closest station to Victoria Road is on the District Line and is DAGENHAM EAST (Zone 5). Don't use Dagenham Heathway which is much further away, unless you're planning to do the Lord Denman pub mentioned below. Assuming you use Dagenham East, come out of the station and turn left along Rainham Road. Victoria Road is about 400 yards, and on the left. The ground is a further 100 yards down Victoria Road.

The mainline station, Dagenham Dock, is around 2.5 miles from the ground, and so under normal circumstances we wouldn't recommend that. It's situated by the Ford motor works and although it's a straight-forward walk it's not not an inspiring one.

General: While parts of That London, even some rather unexpected areas, may be floating on the hipster beer bubble, it certainly hasn’t reached Dagenham yet. Traditional tied and major chain pubs are in decline here – as in many places – with a number of closures since the Ciderspace Guides first began, but with absolutely no sign of micro-brewery dedicated independent pubs, brewery taps, craft bars or micropubs popping up to replace them yet. Those seeking interesting higher quality beer may consider interrupting their journey on route, and then heading in close to kick-off. Of course, this does not help the remaining few outlets in Dagenham to survive – but then maybe life is too short to suffer mediocre beer. Stopping off in the likes of Walthamstow (London Overground to pick up District Line at Barking), the various Hackneys (London Overground to Stratford, one stop on Jubilee Line to pick up District Line at West Ham) provides many more options. Along the District Line itself: the White Hart, 1-3 Mile End Road, E1 4TP (Whitechapel station), Black Lion, 59-61 High Street, E13 0AD (Plaistow station) and Upminster Taproom, 1 Sunnyside Gardens, RM14 3DT (Upminster station at the end of the line) can be recommended, and are all going to produce better beer options than Dagenham.

Club Bar

The clubhouse is open before and after the game. There are two big bars for supporters, plus smaller ones for the use of sponsors, players and the like. A nominal charge of 50p in charged non-members, and away fans are welcome on paying that sum. There is the usual keg from multi-nationals, but one cask beer is available: Young’s Bitter in the past. Recently, bottled beer from Three Daggers Brewery has made an appearance – presumably for its name rather than its location, as they’re from Westbury, Wiltshire. In the away end there is a concourse bar under the stand if you want to head straight into the ground; and the usual football ground fare of the burger/pie/hot dog variety.

Local Pubs

Eastbrook: Situated exactly half a mile north of the ground – so not especially convenient if arriving by train as you virtually pass the ground to yet there. The pub was awarded Grade II* Listed Status in 2010 and is also on CAMRA’s National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors. It was in the Brakspear Pubco chain (they’d sold their beers off to Wychwood Brewery in 2002, who later got bought up by Marston’s), serving what had become the miserable downgrading of Oxford Gold and possibly one more from the same Brakspear brand name, when we last went to Victoria Road. In fact, even the Pubco wasn’t really Brakspear any more by then, their 104 pubs having been bought up by the JT Davies chain… but they decided to keep the Brakspear name over the doors. However, they now seem to have divested this pub from their portfolio (it certainly doesn’t feature on their website any more), and it appears to have moved under individual ownership. Don’t get too excited, even though an extra hand pump was put in, taking them up to three. A recent picture shows only one cask beer actually on, and that was from the Marston’s stable. Keg is of the Carlsberg, Stella, Fosters, Guinness ilk. Food is served 11.30 a.m. - 2.30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 12.30 p.m. – 3.30p.m. Sunday. However, they do provide something on a Saturday if The Daggers are at home. There’s Sky Sports, parking and a beer garden. Opening is 11.00 a.m. – 11.30 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, extending to 12.30 a.m. Friday and Saturday. (Also, a few doors down, is Brook Pie & Mash shop, which does jellied eels as well, should you wish to experience these East End delicacies – open 10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. Monday to Saturday.)

Lord Denman: Was a Spoons on our last visit but became one of the branches Tim sold off in his recent series of clear outs. Now run by Amba Pubco which started up in 2017. It’s at Dagenham Heathway tube station, just to the left on the opposite side of the road as one comes out the station exit, and it’s 15 minutes walking on from there to the stadium. Has up to seven changing cask beers on, sourced from a mixture of national breweries and the occasional smaller independent, and Weston’s Old Rosie as the real cider. There’s Sky Sports. Food is served from 12.00 noon to 8.00 p.m. every day. Opening hours are a bit difficult to pin down as many sources don’t seem to have updated since its time as a Spoons. Most still have it opening at 8.00 a.m. (though quite what it would be selling, when it definitely does not start doing food until noon, and presumably isn’t serving alcohol at 8.00 a.m., is a bit of a mystery). Closing seems clearer, with most agreeing that’s at 11.00 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, and 12.00 midnight Friday and Saturday.

Pipe Major: Closest pub to the stadium is a new build that opened in June 2015. This is a Marston's venue, which describes itself as a 'carvery' although they do other dishes like pies, fish 'n' chips and burgers, typically around the £8 to £10 mark. Food served 12.00 noon to 10.00 p.m. (9.00 p.m. on Sunday). The four beers on hand pump are from the Marston's range: Pedigree, Wainwright, Wychwood Hobgoblin are on permanently; and a changing one of their own beers, rather than a guest.

Grub

There are three fish and chip shops, several cafes, an Indian and a Chinese take-away amongst other outlets in the Rainham Road. If you want to go for some local ethnic food there's a Pie & Mash outlet another few hundred yards up the Rainham Road past the ground and right into Dagenham Road close to the Eastbrook. Jellied eels? Yep, you can even get those as well.

Tourist And Other Local Attractions

Errrm ... the Becontree Estate in Dagenham covers 27,000 houses and was once the largest purpose built estate in Europe. But we'll assume that you haven't come to see that. Realistically, you're either going to visit the Lakeside Shopping Centre (north of the river) or Bluewater Shopping Centre (south of the river) which are both out by the M25 on either side of the Dartford crossing. Alternatively, you'll be off to Central London where the world is your oyster.
