Braintree Town

Braintree Town manager Alan Devonshire says he will make a decision soon on whether to sign any trialists.

Midfielder Kevin McLeod, striker Chib Chilaka and goalkeeper Ashlee Jones are among those that have been at Braintree for pre-season.

Devonshire told BBC Essex: "I've got to decide the squad this week, probably leaving a couple of spaces free, just in case.

"I'm talking to a few at the moment, there will be a couple more signings."

Braintree, in preparation for their first ever season in the Blue Square Bet Premier, have taken on five Football League clubs in the past month, including Colchester United, Leyton Orient and Wycombe Wanderers.

Devonshire added he was pleased with his team's performances: "We've had some decent games, its all about sharpness and fitness at this stage. We're progressing well."
