Danny previews the upcoming week, as well as looking at events that happened on this day for the week commencing 28th November.

THE WEEK AHEAD

Saturday – Dag & Red v TUFC @ Victoria Road (12.30 KO)

United head to east London more in hope than anticipation, at a place they rarely gain anything from. The Daggers have had a steady first half of the season, currently sitting in 9th place. Torquay will need to be at their very best and some, to get anything from this one.

Sunday – Poole Town Ladies v TUWFC @ Poole Town (14.00 KO)

After the disappointment of losing in the FA Cup, the Ladies’ return to league action in Dorset.

PLAYED FOR BOTH

Daggers current talisman Paul McCallum enjoyed a decent loan spell at Plainmoor back in 2013, scoring 3 goals in 6 appearances. Former Gulls’ defender Brian Saah made the switch from Devon to London back in 2013. Gavin Tomlin was on loan at Torquay from Dagenham back in 2011.

BIRTHDAYS

Derek Dawkins – The ‘Dude’ celebrates his 63rd birthday on Tuesday.

Neil Warnock – The former manager turns 74 on Thursday.

Brett Williams – Former Gulls’ striker Brett will celebrate his 35th birthday on Thursday.
