Charlton have finally completed the signing of Paul Benson from Dagenham & Redbridge.

Benson has been someone that Phil Parkinson has been chasing for several weeks now and after having three offers rejected has finally landed the 30-year-old striker for an undisclosed fee much to his delight, Parkinson told The Official Website: “We’re really pleased to get Paul.

“He’s got a good goalscoring record over the years at Dagenham & Redbridge and he’s also a hard-working frontman.

“We’ve worked hard on the deal and it’s taken a while, but that’s understandable. Dagenham didn’t want to lose him because he’s played an important part in their recent history.”

Benson, in an ironic twist of fate could actually make his Addicks debut against The Daggers in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy meeting at The Valley tonight.
