Devonshire's striker hunt set to end

Alan Devonshire is confident that he has the hitman he is looking for.

The Braintree Town manager made the hunt for a new striker his priority this summer and has told the Times that he expects to be able to announce a new signing before the weekend.

While Devonshire wanted to “keep his cards close to his chest” until he had signatures on the dotted line, he said he was expecting to announce a couple of new additions this week with at least one of them being a striker.

He also offered positive news to Braintree fans hoping to see players return from last year’s squad that lifted the club to a record sixth-place finish in the Conference Premier.
