Byron Lawrence has joined Braintree Town on loan until the end of the season.
The Blues midfielder joined Leiston in the summer of 2016, and made his debut against Havant & Waterlooville on the opening day of the season. Just three days later, he scored two goals against Canvey Island to open his goals account in a 3-2 win.
He joined Billericay Town on loan later that season, but played for the Blues the season after helping them reach the play-offs. He also started both games in the Suffolk Premier Cup finals in 2018 and 2019, helping Leiston win both matches against Bury Town and Felixstowe & Walton United to see them lift the trophy.
In total, he has played 116 league games for Leiston, netting 16 times, while overall he has made 148 appearances, scoring on 22 occasions. He has played just 6 times for Leiston this season.
Everyone at Leiston wishes Byron all the best at Braintree Town.
