Daggers’ 5-2 win over last season’s Trophy finalists Southend United has seen them pick up the team performance of the round award from sponsors Johnstone’s Paint.
Zavon Hines gave them a 1-0 half time lead, but two from Southend’s Cauley Woodrow inside three minutes at the start of the second half gave the Shrimpers the advantage.
But a dominant spell saw the Daggers score a staggering four goals inside eight minutes from Hines, Brian Saah, Chris Dickson and Affy Obafemi saw them cruise in to the area quarter-finals, where they’ll face League One highfliers Peterborough United at London Road.
The club will now receive a trophy as well as £200 of Johnstone’s Paint product to use on a club project, which will be provided by the nearby Johnstone’s Decorating Centre on Alfreds Way in Barking.
Club officials have elected to use their Johnstone’s Paint product prize to spruce up their clubhouse, which houses supporters club bars and hosts community activities.
“It was a terrific performance and we are delighted to have received the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy team of the round award,” said manager Wayne Burnett.
“The players stuck to the task really well after going 2-1 down, and to score four goals in eight minutes was a remarkable turnaround. It was a result we deserved and hopefully that, and winning the award, will give us the momentum to continue our very strong run of form.
“The Johnstone’s Paint product prize is also an additional bonus and we are delighted to put it to good use in the clubhouse.”
Ben Wilde, Brand & Sponsorship Manager of Johnstone’s Paint, said: “There were some brilliant displays in the second round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, particularly from Sky Bet League Two clubs.
“None were more impressive than Dagenham & Redbridge’s. To score five goals away from home in any game is a magnificent achievement, but particularly having been 2-1 behind just after half-time,
He added: “Our congratulations go to everyone who played a part in the victory and we are delighted that the paint prize will be used in the clubhouse, to not only enhance the experience of supporters but also to benefit the community.”
