Kenny Davis has committed himself to Braintree Town for next season by signing a contract extension at the club.

Davis has been in superb form at the heart of the Iron's midfield this year and has worn the captain's armband throughout their first ever campaign in the top-flight of non-league football.

His leadership on the pitch has also caught the eye of England C manager Paul Fairclough, who selected Davis for their International Challenge Trophy opener against Italy.

And Braintree boss Alan Devonshire was pleased to secure the services of one of another influential member of his squad.

He said: "Kenny's had a great season for us and I'm really pleased he's agreed to sign up for another year.

"He's led the side with a calm professionalism and that has been acknowledged with his England call-up.

"With the players already here, together with one or two additions, I'm already looking forward to next season."

Davis became the second Iron player to sign a new deal in a matter of days after goalkeeper Nathan McDonald also put his name to a contract extension.

Devonshire added: "Nathan's done really well for us this season and, being a young goalkeeper, is still learning and can only get better.

"He's adapted well to life in the Blue Square Bet Premier and I'm delighted that he has committed his future to us here at Braintree."
