Winger Daniel Sparkes joins Braintree Town from Histon

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.
