Dagenham & Redbridge have welcomed back Conor Wilkinson to the Chigwell Construction Stadium, who today signs an 18-month contract with the club.
The prolific goalscorer scored six times in eleven appearances in his recent loan spell with the club. During their visit last week, the new ownership group led by Peter Freund, Tim Howard and Craig Unger, expressed their deep desire to recapture the forward ahead of an all-important 2019.
Wilkinson commented on his return to Victoria Road: “I did have interest from clubs in the Football League and in this league but I wanted to come back here. The last eleven games have really benefited me, I’ve found myself again, enjoying the football I have been playing and it’s good to be back playing for the team.”
Peter Taylor also was delighted to see Wilkinson back in a Daggers shirt: “I am delighted Conor has signed a permanent contract with us, I think he has shown in the short period what a good player he can be,” said Taylor. “He has shown great commitment and ability in his loan spell here, now we are looking for him to kick on even more. It’s positive for the Football Club and himself as Conor is being very positive in the plans the xlub has ahead of itself.”
Wilkinson will be available for selection for this Saturday’s league fixture against Maidstone United and will remain as the club’s no.17.
