Still backs Exeter postponement

12 August 2010 05:30
Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still has insisted the decision to postpone Saturday`s trip to Exeter was a "no-brainer." The Daggers were quick to agree with the decision following the death on Tuesday night of Exeter striker Adam Stansfield at the age of 31 following a battle against bowel cancer. Still told the club`s official website: "It`s a no-brainer. "Everyone within the game of football, particularly within this league, will only have one thing on their mind and that is the devastation something like this causes. "As the team that Exeter were due to play we were never in any doubt that if it was in Exeter`s best interests as a club to postpone the game then we would support that. "Myself, I`ve known the player for quite a few years and I`m absolutely devastated. It is a tragic loss of a young man and it gives us all a wake-up call. Football is really important but it has to take a back seat at this particular time."
