Legendary Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still made a perfect start to life at Luton Town, winning his first game in charge of a new club after nine years in east London.

Still, who originally managed the Daggers between 1992 and 1994 after his former club Redbridge formed to make Dagenham & Redbridge, replaced Paul Buckle at Kenilworth Road as the Hatters look to make a late charge towards the play-offs.

The 62-year-old became known for bringing players from non-league football and making them into top league players at Victoria Road, with Paul Benson, Craig Mackail-Smith, Danny Green and Dwight Gayle all success stories for the League Two club.

Still held the record of being the longest serving football league manager and the fourth longest-serving manger in England behind Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and David Moyes before his surprise exit last week.

And, his impact was immediate, with Jake Howells scoring the only goal in first-half injury-time away at Stockport County.

Meanwhile, Daggers coach Wayne Burnett - who took over as interim manager until the end of the season having manged before at local sides Fisher Athletic and Grays - suffered a first game defeat, with Abu Ogogo's own goal the difference at home against Chesterfield.

Youth coaches Warren Hackett and Darren Currie, who used to play for the club and is still registered to play if needed, will assist Burnett in the running of the first team.
