Braintree sign Sparkes
Blue Square Premiership,
Braintree Town have completed the signing of winger Daniel Sparkes from Blue Square Bet North side Histon.
The 20-year-old, who captained Histon towards the end of last season, has signed a two-year deal with the Iron, though a compensation fee will have to be agreed between the two clubs as Sparkes was still under contract with the Stutes. The player had been on the Iron's radar for some time and manager Alan Devonshire believes he will have no trouble in making the grade in the Blue Square Bet Premier. He said: "We've been watching him for a while. He's got a great left foot and will comfortably make the step up."
