Dagenham and Redbridge midfielder Joss Labadie has been banned from football for six months for biting Stevenage defender Ronnie Henry.

The incident took place when the two sides met at the Lamex Stadium in a Sky Bet League Two clash on March 21.

Last season Labadie was banned for 10 games for another biting offence while playing for Torquay United.

A statement on the Daggers’ website reads: “Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Joss Labadie appeared before a Football Association disciplinary hearing this afternoon.
