Dagenham & Redbridge
Playing through midfield - Issue 35 (June 2013)
Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett enjoyed a prolific lower league career, turning out for the likes of Leyton Orient, Plymouth Argyle, Huddersfield Town and Grimsby Town before hanging up his boots in 2004. Having also played semi-professionally, he dropped into the nonleague game for his first managerial post, at Fisher Athletic in 2004.
He went on to manage Dulwich Hamlet and Grays Athletic, before accepting the assistant manager’s job at Dagenham in 2009. And after first-team boss John Still left for Luton Town in February, 41-year-old Burnett stepped up, immediately guiding the club to safety in npower League Two.
