Chris Dagnall has linked up with former Yeovil Town team-mate Carl Dickinson at Hanley Town, the club has confirmed today.

Speaking to his new club’s website, Dagnall spoke about the influence of playing alongside Dickinson, who took over as manager at Hanley after retiring from playing at the end of last season.

He said: “He’s been a massive influence, me and Carl spoke quite a bit towards the end of last season about once he agreed to become the manager here and what he planned to do going forward, asked if I would be interested.”

“With me not being too far locally to the area it was definitely something that interested me after a few discussions I’m here.”

The 35-year-old played 25 times for the Glovers this season, scoring once in the 2-0 home win over Altrincham in February, and spent the latter part of the campaign in a deeper midfield role.

Last season, Dagnall played 22 times for Darren Sarll having joined in October 2019 following his release by Tranmere Rovers.

Hanley will be the 12th club of Dagnall’s career which began at Tranmere as a 17-year-old in 2003 and has seen him play for Rochdale, Barnsley, Scunthorpe United and Crewe Alexandra. He even had a stint with Kerala Blasters in the Indian Super League in 2015.

Stoke-on-Trent-based Hanley will play next season in the Midland League Premier Division at Step 5 in the football pyramid.

Everyone at the Gloverscast wishes Daggers well for his new club – now someone arrange that pre season friendly already!!!
