Luke Norris has extended his stay at Dagenham & Redbridge for another month.

The 20-year-old signed an initial one-month deal on January 24, and came off the bench to score the equaliser in the 3-3 home draw with Scunthorpe United, and he followed that up with another goal as the Daggers drew 1-1 with Southend United three days later.

Norris also started the 1-0 win at Rochdale, before coming off the bench in the draw at Burton Albion, though saw the Victoria Road side fall to their first defeat in his time on loan last weekend as the Daggers lost out 2-1 to Plymouth Argyle.

The Daggers squad is on the thin side at the moment, with only five substitutes named against the Pilgrims at the weekend, and manager Wayne Burnett opted to extend his loan with the club.

“I’m delighted we’ve been able to extend Luke’s loan,” Burnett told the club website. “Hopefully he can contribute like he has done in our games over the coming weeks. He’s done very well since he’s been here and importantly he and the club wanted him to stay.”
