Promising Ipswich Town striker Monty Patterson has joined National League side Braintree Town on a month-long youth loan.

The 19-year-old, who scored his first senior goal for New Zealand – against the USA – earlier this month, has yet to make his Blues debut, and came off the bench as a late substitute in Iron’s 3-2 league win at Woking on Tuesday night.
