Braintree Town have signed 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.
Braintree manager Alan Devonshire said: "We've been watching him for a while. He's got a great left foot and will comfortably make the step up."
As Sparkes was contracted to Histon, a compensation fee will need to be agreed between the two clubs.
