Dagenham and Redbridge have signed defender Luke Pennell from Dunstable Town
The 20 year old has caught the eye of the Daggers after impressing at the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier side and has reportedly attracted the interest of other football league clubs after having trials at Norwich, Burnley and Fleetwood.
The former MK Dons academy player has had spells at both Rushden and Diamonds and Banbury United before joining Dunstable at the beginning of the season. Dunstable currently sit 10th in the table.
On the signing, manager John Still has said, “Luke was a player I watched whilst at Luton because he was at Dunstable which was local. I was under the impression he had gone to Norwich, but as soon as I knew he was still available I tried to do something about it.
We’ve been speaking to him over the last couple of weeks and got it over the line today. I look forward to him joining up with the rest of the squad.”
Pennell joins the Daggers on a 2 and a half year deal.
