A succession of mergers led to the formation of Dagenham & Redbridge, who have proved a tough opponent over the years. The Daggers came about when Dagenham joined forces with Redbridge in 1992; the latter the result of a merger between Ilford, Leytonstone and Walthamstow Avenue – all former Boro’ opponents from yesteryear. We’re not going to hold it against you if you can’t quite keep up.
Dagenham & Redbridge: The Facts
The Chigwell Construction Stadium
Victoria Road, Dagenham, Essex, RM10 7XL
We understand that wheelchair users or ambulant disabled fans are entitled to concession tickets. For this, you must receive (and prove that you receive) the middle or higher rate of the Disability Living Allowance, PIP equivalent or the Severe Disablement Allowance.
The club says the ground has 24 wheelchair spaces, together with a seat for carers where required. Last time we looked, these spaces are in front of the away stand. If you go with a personal assistant, they will receive a complimentary ticket.
Guide dogs are allowed too. But the club requests that you get in touch to discuss access, facilities and welfare before the match.
For Supporters with ambulatory disabilities “of a severe nature”, you can enter the ground with a concession ticketand sit in the areas nearest to the entrances and exits. If you don’t wish to sit in these areas, however, it might mean you don’t get the concessionary rate.
The Daggers’ website contains loads of information relating to the facilities for supporters with disabilities. Take a look or get in touch with the club if you have any concerns.
If Boro’ aren’t a ‘high profile’ visitor, away fans can use the social club at the ground for a 50p entry fee. Otherwise, you might find venturing out onto local streets and making use of nearby pubs. We’ve not heard of any that you’d want to steer clear of. Mind you, we’ve not heard of many full stop to be honest.
