Dagenham & Redbridge have bolstered their squad with the signing of former York City and Notts County midfielder Andre Boucaud on a one-year deal.

The 29-year-old has featured on a couple of occasions for the Daggers in pre-season, most notably the 4-3 home defeat to Colchester United.

Boucaud, who will wear the number 28 shirt, was a free agent after being released by Notts County in the summer, and hadn’t featured for Shaun Derry’s side for the final two months of the season.

He started the 2011-12 season with eventual Conference Premier play-off winners York City before a £25,000 January move to Luton Town.

Boucaud’s move to the Daggers sees him reunited once again with former Minstermen team-mate Ashley Chambers, and he is the 12th summer signing by boss Wayne Burnett, though more are possibly on the way.

Having missed out on Carmarthen Town striker Christian Doidge, Daggers boss Wayne Burnett is likely to look at the loan market to add one or two more to his squad.
