Dagenham & Redbridge unveil mural at Victoria Road

4 February 2015

A mural to celebrate Dagenham & Redbridge's history and their continued efforts to support diversity and the local community has been unveiled at the club's ground.

The artwork, which adorns the wall alongside the League 2 club's Family Stand, was revealed at last Saturday's 'Daggers against Racism' match by club legend Anwar Uddin.

A number of VIP guests were also in attendance, including Football League Chairman Greg Clarke, Cllr Kange - Mayor of Barking and Dagenham, Cllr Wheeler - Mayor of Cheltenham, Kevin Coleman from the Football Association, and the unveiling was also featured on Sky Sports News.

The spray-painted mural was created in conjunction with the Football Supporters' Federation and Kick It Out.

Dagenham's Managing Director, Steve Thompson MBE, said: "The mural depicts part of the club's celebrations following the win at Wembley in the Play-Off Finals.

“Included in the artwork are Uddin himself - the first Asian Player to captain a team in The Football League, South African Mark Arber, and Jon Nurse - Dagenham and Redbridges’ first full international for Barbados.

“All three players were involved in the Daggers' League 2 promotion season, with Nurse scoring the winning goal in the Final."
