And the youngster says the assistant manager during that time, Currie was influential, and gave him the tools to have a good season.

“The biggest person to influence my career that is not a family member is Darren Currie, the way he made me feel before a game and on the training pitch, he made me feel 10 feet tall and gave me the confidence and freedom to express myself,” Maguire-Drew admitted.

“When I was at Dagenham it proved that with the goals and assists that I got.”

Maguire-Drew is now at east London rivals Leyton Orient.
