Player Profile - James Shea

Dagenham and Redbridge

James Shea
Bournemouth 5-0 Dag & Red
Wednesday, August 10
James Shea made his first start for Dagenham and Redbridge on Tuesday as his new loan side went down 5-0 at Bournemouth in the Carling Cup. The young goalkeeper, who is on a season-long loan at the League Two side, started well and made good early saves to deny Marc Pugh and Adam Barrett. But League One Bournemouth proved too strong for Dagenham and found the net five times to progress into the next round.
