Archant’s Ned Keating, George Sessions and Matt Clemenson discuss the latest topics affecting our clubs

Fight those tears back as for the final time this season, it’s the East London Football Podcast, bringing you up to date on all things Dagenham & Redbridge, Leyton Orient and West Ham United.

For Daggers, it’s time to look back at what has largely been a positive campaign in the National League.

After coming up short in the play-offs, though, questions remain over the future of several players who are out of contract this summer.

As for Orient, questions remain over their future in general with rumours abounding that owner Francesco Becchetti might be close to selling the club.

On the pitch, the O’s played what will be their last Football League for hopefully just a season on Saturday – a match in which Jens Janse actually scored!

For West Ham, while they still have two games left this term, their season might as well be over with not that much to play for.

The Hammers do, though, have a final home game of the term to worry about against Liverpool on Sunday – can they make it four clean sheets in a row?

As ever, Archant reporters George Sessions and Ned Keating join host Matt Withers.

But in a special end-of-season treat, Ilford Recorder report Matt Clemenson steps in for Dave Evans, who, much like the most of the West Ham squad, has his flip-flops on.
