BRAINTREE Town will be looking to reinforce their attacking options this summer after the loss of two of their forwards.

Alfie Pavey has left the Iron to join their National League South rivals Farnborough.

The 27-year-old striker joined the Iron from Dover Athletic in January and helped them with their National League South play-off push, scoring nine times.


Pavey told the Farnborough FC website: “I believe it’s a football club that’s going in the right direction. I’ve been speaking to (manager) Spencer (Day) since January.

“I just love the way the club is moving. There’s a lot of progression on and off the pitch.

“I think everyone’s ambition is to get promoted. I can’t wait to get started!”

Farnborough boss Spencer Day told the Farnborough FC website: “A pedigree striker with experience at this level and above.

"Alfie is one of the very best hold up strikers around and as we found out, can dispatch a penalty with aplomb……!!!

“Alfie helped push Braintree into the Play-Offs and will not give centre halves a minutes rest.

"His desire to come meant this was a really easy deal to do.”


Lamar Reynolds has also left Braintree to join National League South newcomers Maidstone United to play under former Iron defender George Elokobi.

Reynolds made 41 appearances for the Iron this season, scoring six goals.

Writing on social media, he said: 'Would like to thank @braintreetownfc for an exciting season.

'We was doubted yet we created some great memories thank you to the players, staff, fans and all involved at the club. Wish you all the best'.

Braintree have announced four friendlies for their pre-season campaign.

The Iron will host a Ipswich Town XI, on July 28.

Prior to that, Braintree will travel to play Ipswich Wanderers on July 8, Canvey Island on July 18 and Hornchurch FC on July 25.
