ONE TO WATCH
Beginning his career at Dulwich Hamlet, Paul McCallum worked through the youth system to the senior team.
After being noticed by a variety of Premier League clubs, the youngster moved to West Ham United in 2011.
During his time at Upton Park he was sent out on loan to the likes of AFC Wimbledon, Aldershot Town, Hearts and Portsmouth before signing permanently for Leyton Orient in 2015.
After deciding not to extend his contract with the O’s in 2017, the 28-year-old signed for Eastleigh and then Solihull Moors – where he was sent out on loan to Barnet.
McCallum signed for Dagenham & Redbridge on a three-year deal in 2020 and is the club’s top goalscorer this season.
