Braintree Town manager Glen Driver says he continues to be happy with his ongoing Iron team building and is expecting to be able to announce further new additions to his squad in the next few days.

Driver said he had been busy and had been speaking to up to ten players a day since taking charge at Cressing Road and felt pleased with how his plans were coming together.

Five new additions have already been announced - goalkeeper Michael Johnson, striker Tom Richardson, defender Jake Hutchings and midfield duo Trey Charles and Aaron Lamont - and further deals are close to getting over the line.

Driver didn't want to reveal who they were until full registration details had been completed, but confirmed that he was hopeful of securing the signings of a number of players who featured for the Iron last season.

"We have been working really hard and I'm hoping to have more signings that we can announce this week," said Driver.

"I'm speaking to about ten players every day so it has been very busy and we will leave no stone unturned.

"I'm very pleased with what we've been doing as it's been going really really well."

The Iron boss added that an in-house game had been planned for this week to allow him and assistant manager Tony Kinsella to assess members of Braintree Town squads playing at younger age levels and in the Iron reserves last year to see if there were any players they considered able to make the step up into his first-team.

Driver said: "I've always said that age does not come into it and we will give people opportunities to impress in these games and in pre-season.

"If they are good enough then they are old enough in my book."
