Vanarama National League club Braintree Town have signed defenders Jerome Okimo and Quade Taylor and winger Rohdell Gordon.

The 28-year-old Okimo spent almost eight years with Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central side Chalfont St Peter, making over 300 appearances.

He trialled with Gillingham whilst with the Saints, but then in the summer of 2013 he earned a move to Wealdstone and played a major part in their promotion to the National League South a year later.

But in the summer of 2014 he got his professional chance with Stevenage and went on to make forty-two appearances for the Broadhall Way outfit before being released at the end of last season.

Taylor originally came through Ryman League Premier Division club Dulwich Hamlet`s youth system before being signed by Crystal Palace in March 2011.

The Tooting-born 22-year-old had a spell on loan with Welling United, then managed by Braintree boss Jamie Day, during the 2013/14 season but was released by Palace at the end of that season.

He was signed by Bolton Wanderers on an initial one-year contract which was extended by a year.

Towards the end of last season he gained more experience in a loan spell with then League Two Dagenham & Redbridge and was released by Bolton at the end of the campaign.

Gordon was a team-mate of Jerome Okimo at Stevenage before also finding himself being released at the end of last season.

The 20-year-old winger was signed by Stevenage on a youth contract in 2010 following an impressive trial for the club.

He continued to impress the club and in 2014 his efforts were rewarded with a professional deal.

He spent the majority of the 2014/15 season on loan at National League South side Chelmsford City during which he made thirty-six appearances, scored 4 goals and provided nine assists.

Earlier in his career he also had loan spells with Walton Casuals, Arlesey Town and Bishop`s Stortford and last season spent time in the National League with Bromley, making fifteen appearances.

He left Boro having played seven times in the first-team.
