KNOW YOUR HISTORY
Dagenham & Redbridge were formed in 1992 from the merger of 'Dagenham' and 'Redbridge Forest'. Redbridge Forest were formed in 1988 from an amalgamation of Walthamstow Avenue and Leytonstone/Ilford. All these clubs were former opponents of Wycombe in the Isthmian League and/or the Conference. Perhaps the most famous meeting between the 'old' Dagenham side and Wycombe was the final game of the 1974/75 season when a late goal from Keith Searle won the Isthmian League title for the Wanderers.
