Braintree Town sign Wealdstone defender Alan Massey

Braintree

Braintree Town have signed defender Alan Massey from Ryman Premier Division club Wealdstone.

The 23-year-old will provide cover for Dean Wells, who dislocated his shoulder in Saturday's 3-2 Blue Square Bet Premier defeat by Barrow.

Massey, 23, joined Wealdstone after being released by Wycombe Wanderers in 2008 and has made over 200 appearances.

"Alan has been a superb servant of this club," Wealdstone manager Gordon Bartlett told the club's website.

"He leaves with our full blessing as he fully deserves the opportunity to play at a higher level of football."

Braintree expect Wells to be out of action for six to eight weeks because of his shoulder injury.
