Daggers have drafted in winger Ashley Chambers on a one-month emergency loan deal from Conference Premier side Cambridge United.
The 24-year-old had spent just over three seasons at fellow League Two side York City, before being made available for a free transfer by the Minstermen and subsequently joining the U’s in January.
In fact, his last game for Nigel Worthington’s side was the 3-1 win over Daggers at Bootham Crescent earlier in the season.
Chambers scored twice for York in their 3-2 home victory against the then John Still side and also featured in the 1-0 end of season win at Victoria Road.
He initially started his career at Leicester City before several loan spells and a permanent move to York.
Chambers scored on his Cambridge United debut against Luton Town in the FA Trophy back on January 11 and made it back-to-back goals against the Hatters when scoring the only goal in the U’s replay win.
And Chambers, who trained with his new team-mates this morning before they set off for Exeter City can come straight into the Daggers squad for their trip to St James’ Park, and will wear the number 10 shirt in his time with club.
On the signing, Daggers boss Wayne Burnett said: “I am delighted to bring Ashley to the football club. We feel he can enhance our squad and I am looking forward to working with him.
“He’s a player I have known for a little while and he’s played against us a few times in recent seasons. He could possibly come into the starting XI but he trained with us this morning so we’ll see. It may be too soon for a start but he’s available to call upon if required.”
