Ex-Newcastle defender Titus Bramble joins ninth-tier Stowmarket Town
Bramble, who has played for Ipswich, Bobby Robson's Newcastle, Wigan and Sunderland in a career spanning 375 appearances, has taken up a contract with the semi-professional club while he continues coaching at Ipswich's academy.
Bramble had a trial for the Tractor Boys over the summer, but couldn't earn a deal with the club he began his professional career at in 1998.
So instead he's dropped down into English football's lower depths – more specifically, the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.
The former England U21 international signed a one-year contract late on Thursday night and could make his debut against Felixstowe & Walton on Saturday afternoon.
