Devonshire’s West Ham & Colchester Contacts Will Keep Braintree Smiling
The recent West Ham game will have given former Hammer and Braintree Town gaffer Alan Devonshire a chance to run the rule over some potential loans. Prior to beating a Hammers XI 3-2, Colchester Utd inflicted a 4-1 defeat, but the goal from no 9 Sean Marks and the assist from Captain Kenny Davies shows his one in and none out policy is not a bad one. Only Chez Izaac has come in from Borehamwood suggesting Dev’s development ploy is set to continue as one of the divisions smallest budgets continues to employ their slender resources wisely.

Alan Devonshire seems keen to stick with what he has and who can blame him after a 9th placed finish last season. No one has been released or sold suggesting a competitive and compact unit will be a force to be reckoned with both home and away next season. Davies is a driving captain whilst Marks will continue to ransack central defenders up and down the Skrill League. Braintree formerly the pub side from Essex are far more than that now with Sparkes and Izaac two live-wire midfielders who can supply the bullets for Marks, Holman and Cox to keep them midtable at worst. They will be aiming higher every time the whistle blows but the board and fans may well be happy with that. In football too much ambition can come at a cost.
