Braintree Town Focus

Braintree Town manager and chief scout Alan Devonshire has added two from Norwich City (winger Dawkin & centre back Habergham), Exeter centre midfielder McNish and young Orient goal machine  forward Kane Shepherd from Orient to replace Wright who has joined Forest Green Rovers.  After a solid first season in the BSP having claimed the 2010-11 BSS championship you feel these canny additions, to a loyal and hard working squad, will see them kick on.

STMI take a look at Braintree Town ,  The Iron another side with plenty of potential, given their location. Here are Ticket prices for all BSP Away supporters prices  and please feel free to bookmark our  Blue square zone for BSP gossip and of course when you are playing the Imps – HERE.


The guide will start with the preseason results, transfers in & out, plus the released and new deals list. Then we will have a glance at the  summer sound-bites (most recent to last) and finally the current confirmed squad as at 1st August.  STMI thank fans who correct us when we have got it wrong. It shows there is a kindred spirit that seems to care and share in the Blue Square. Rare amidst the greed culture of our national game and the financial walk of life. But while we have Saturdays (and Tuesday nights)…..
