Braintree Town striker Kaine Sheppard has headed to Blue Square Bet South side Histon on a month's loan.

It will be the third spell at the Glassworld Stadium for the 19-year-old.

He made four appearances for Histon during a loan as a youth player from Leyton Orient last season and also played six times for the Stutes on loan from the Iron before Christmas.

Braintree manager Alan Devonshire told the Times last week that he was keen for Sheppard to get a loan spell to build his experience while he had striker Dan Walker on loan at the Amlin Stadium from Luton Town.

Sheppard has made two starts to Braintree since signing for them last summer and 14 appearances off the bench and has scored twice, including one on his debut as the Iron drew 2-2 with Hyde.
