Blanchfield Joins Daggers
Thursday, 5th Jul 2018 15:24
Released Blues midfielder James Blanchfield has joined Vanarama National League Dagenham and Redbridge on a one-year deal.
The 20-year-old left Town at the end of last season having been unable to break into the first team after joining the academy from Arsenal in 2014.
A brief spell on loan at Aldershot after Christmas last year was curtailed by a knock, the midfielder having made only one sub appearance for the Shots.
“I have been having talks for the past couple of weeks and to finally get everything done I am over the moon and can’t wait to get started and show the fans and the manager what I am capable of,” the Southend-born schemer told the Daggers official site.
“When the opportunity first came up, my dad told me what a great manager Peter [Taylor] is and how lucky I am to get the opportunity to play under him, so I can’t wait to start learning from him."

Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.

With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
