Braintree Town have taken defender Sean Long on loan from Championship side Reading until the end of April.

A reliable defender was a regular during Reading`s successful under-18s 2012/13 season, helping the side reach the Barclays Under-18 Premier League final.

He is normally deployed at right-back, proving to be very solid at the back but also capable of pushing forward.

Regularly plays and has captained the Republic of Ireland under-19s, progressed into the Royals under-21 side.

He made the substitute’s bench for the Royals FA Cup defeat to Brighton in 2014 and is recently back from a loan spell with League Two side Luton Town, where he made seven league and two FA Cup appearances.
