Ahead of tomorrow night’s Skrill Premier trip to FC Halifax Town, Braintree Town boss Alan Devonshire has added another midfielder to his squad after taking Queens Park Rangers youngster Josh Laurent on a 28-day loan.

Laurent, who is 18, played a big part in QPR under-18s title success last season, making 20 appearances as well as establishing himself in the London side’s Under-21s side and he penned a one-year professional contract at Loftus Road last summer.

The QPR player joins Brentford’s Josh Clark at the Iron after the Bees midfielder also signed on a month’s loan deal at the end of last week.
