John Still Switches Dag & Red For Lutonby Jack Kitson / 26 February 2013, 11:29Tweet
John Still has chosen to drop down a division after leaving League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge for Luton Town of the National Conference. Luton had been on the lookout for a new boss since last week when Paul Buckle departed due to personal reasons. Still will now be tasked with leading the club - who are currently 11 points adrift of the play-offs - back into the Football League.
Still had been in charge of the Daggers for a whopping nine years, making him one of the longest standing managers in England. He joined the club for a second spell as manager way back in 2004 and has overseen more than 450 matches. His major achievements include leading the east London side into the Football League in 2007 and then winning the League Two play-offs three years later. He now leaves them 16th in the table with 12 matches of the season remaining.
Wayne Burnett has been placed in caretaker charge for Dagenham's match against Bradford on Wednesday night. He will no doubt be in contention for the job, with the odds appearing here - Next Dag & Red Manager Odds - once they have been released by bookmakers.
