Doe Reaches 300 For Daggers

Youcef Dahmani speaks to Dagenham & Redbridge captain Scott Doe, after the defender made his 300th appearance with the east Londoners on Saturday against York City.

The Daggers earned three vital points over the weekend against York City, after winning 1-0.

Captain Scott Doe was pleased with his side’s performance:

“Obviously [a] clean sheet is first and first and foremost for me and for the back four, because we haven’t had one in a while and we needed that.

“And obviously a win and like I said regardless of where they are in the league, it was a big win,” he added.

Milestone

Doe made his 300th appearance in a Daggers shirt and was proud of reaching such a high number:

“300 games is a nice milestone and to top off with a win.”

The Daggers captain was part of the side that saw the Daggers promoted in the play-off finals in Wembley, for the first time in their history, to League One in the 2009–10 season.

He is hopeful that the side can see off promotion this season, as he told us about his most memorable moment with the club:

“The play-off final at Wembley and the good thing about it is you know we have a chance of doing that again”, Doe explained.

“For me it would be playing at Wembley, obviously it is an incredible day out and I’d do anything to get back there again.”

Highs and Lows

Doe reminisced how when he first joined the club back in 2009, he would have never thought that he would have reached such a high amount of appearances:

“It has come round quite quick, but it’s mad, if I think about it, obviously I think I was 20 when I first joined.”

The experienced center-back also mentioned how he remembers the good and bad times:

“It’s been a long time, but I’ve managed most seasons [to] try and play most games, which is important for me, highs and lows, but it’s been quite a few highs, so it’s good to obviously get 300th [appearance] and a win.”

The 28 year old mentioned how he has learned over the years from players such as John Nurse and Mark Arber:

“You learn so much from them and now it’s me who has to do that to the younger lads who are coming through.”
