Meanwhile, Braintree captain Kenny Davis, 27, and strikers Jordan Cox, 22, and Sean Marks, 29, have all signed new deals with the club for 2015-16.

"Michael Cheek was the best all-round forward in the Conference South last year," new Iron boss Danny Cowley told the club website.external-link

"Kenny Davis has established himself as one of the best midfield players in non-league football and is a massive part of our football club.

"Jordan Cox has unbelievable potential. We see Sean Marks as being both a vital player and character within the group."

Braintree finished 14th in the Conference in 2014-15 and will have Cowley in charge next term after parting company with former manager Alan Devonshire.
