Tamworth sign Brown and Christie


Wrexham winger Simon Brown has joined Blue Square Premier rivals Tamworth on a month's loan.

And Tamworth have also brought in much-travelled striker Iyesden Christie on non-contract terms.

Both have been signed in time to be considered for selection for Saturday's Blue Square Premier home date with bottom club Chester City.

Christie will mark his 33rd birthday by playing for his fifth different non-league side this season.

The Coventry-born front man, who started on the books of his home town club, was released by promoted Torquay United this summer after a 14-year professional career that had already taken in Bournemouth, Mansfield Town (twice), Leyton Orient, Kidderminster Harriers (twice), Rochdale, Stevenage and Kettering Town.

After starting this season at Telford, he has since also turned out in various competitions for King's Lynn, Coventry Sphinx and Farnborough Town.

Brown, 26, who briefly played alongside Christie in their time together at Kidderminster, was signed for Wrexham by former boss Brian Little.

He has not played for Wrexham this season, his last appearance having come in the 2-0 win over Weymouth in April.

Brown, who started his career with West Bromwich Albion, was sold by then boss Bryan Robson to Mansfield Town in December 2004.

He moved on to Wrexham in July 2008, but spent two separate spells out on loan last season, first with Rushden & Diamonds then at York City.
