Braintree Bring In Four And Release Two

Braintree Town have added four players to their squad prior to the trip down to Havant & Waterlooville tomorrow.

Iron boss Brad Quinton has signed 26-year old centre-half Josh Hill, who has been training with the club since leaving league rivals Wealdstone at Christmas.

Hill has previously played for Boreham Wood, Dartford and tomorrow`s opponents Havant.

Quinton has also signed 22-year old midfielder Jack Curtis from Thurlow Nunn League side Coggeshall Town on dual registration terms.

Curtis (pictured) came through the youth system at Tottenham Hotspur before joining Colchester United.

He was part of the double-winning youth side of 2013/14, as the Colchester under-18's won their league and the Youth Alliance Cup.

He made one first-team appearance, coming on as a substitute in the 6-3 Emirates FA Cup win over Wealdstone

He joined Bostik Premier side Needham Market on loan for the first half of the 2016/17 season, where he scored 6 goals in twenty-seven appearances, before deciding to leave Colchester permanently to pursue first-team football, subsequently joining Harlow Town.

Quinton has also brought two players to the club on loan from SkyBet Championship side Ipswich Town.

Joining the squad are 18-year old defender Patrick Webber and 19-year-old forward Conor McKendry.

Webber joined Ipswich from Bostik League Premier outfit Worthing on a trial in February 2016, before he re-joined Town five months later, signing a two-year scholarship.

He made his full senior debut in the 2Ð1 defeat against Crystal Palace in the EFL Cup second round in August 2017.

McKendry began his career in his native Ireland with Larne, St Oliver Plunkett, and Glenavon.

In 2015, he signed a two-year scholarship with Ipswich.

McKendry then signed his first professional contract in June 2017 to stay a Tractor Boy for the current season.

McKendry has represented Northern Ireland at under-16 and under-17 levels.

Meanwhile, the club have released defender Joe Ellul and striker Karl Oliyide
