After “forming” in 1979, Leytonstone Ilford renamed itself Redbridge Forest in 1989 and then merged with Dagenham in 1992. We say “forming” like that because this club was the outcome of a merger too. And you can also trace a direct line from them through to Dagenham & Redbridge too. Merger central! Our memories of the club aren’t particularly happy ones either. Two meetings in the 1986-7 campaign both ended 1-0 to them.
