That number is more than any other club or scheme at our level in the entire Country.

Hunter said, “We have progressed many of our boys in the last 10 years to play at a senior non-league or professional level of football and presently we have 3 England College Internationals, 7 PASE Scheme players in our First Team squad and playing at Conference South Level. In addition, we have helped five of our old youth team players into the professional game.

While Pelly Ruddock left us to join East London giants West Ham United in 2012 after he enjoyed a trial and impressed Hammers boss Sam Allardyce.

Everyone of the staff involved with the Club and the PASE Academy need thanking as they have worked tirelessly over the past months in the recruitment process and their hard work is paying off…”

Garrard continued, “The standard of players has been of a level that we can work with and improve. I believe that have we put on enjoyable trials for them all and they have got a real insight of the Club, the coaching, its facilities, and the education provision that’s provided…”

AT THE DOUBLE

BntwBMbCEAEjoYu.jpg-large

Jack VaseyBoreham Wood’s talented U/18′s travelled away on Thursday night, to a resilient and competetive Colney Heath side, who enjoyed home advantage for the final of the Brian Hitchins Cup.

After 90 minutes of absorbing cup football, the game still remained deadlocked 0-0 and so a further 30 minutes of extra time was required to separate the teams.

Finally it was young Wood’s youngsters who emerged victorious, scoring twice in the second period of extra time through Marcio Cruz and skipper Jack Vasey, to win the final 2-0 and deservedly complete another league and cup double.

Luke Garrard copy 2Academy Director and U/18 manager Luke Garrard said “the game was always going to be tight, especially as we were having to play a cup final against a good Colney Heath side, at their home ground. I felt that home advantage could well play a part but though it was close game, we were always just about in control and thoroughly deserved our victory…”

“Our players, our coaches and our medical team, can now enjoy a well earned summer break, as they have all worked so hard for each other this season. As a club we have tried to improve throughout the year and that hard work has been rewarded. That can be seen by our u/18′s winning a league and cup double, by three players being chosen for England Colleges and by our u/19′s reaching the National College Cup semi final once again. The groundwork is still being laid at present and will I hope be a platform for even more club and player success in the future” Garrard concluded…


ENGLAND, ST GEORGE AND BOREHAM WOOD

DSC_1084

Boreham Wood Football Club have enjoyed a truly wonderful three days of success this week from our PASE Academy all the way up to our First Team.

JAME, MAXWELL & HARRYFirstly three of ‘Wood’s’ very promising youth team players in Harry Singh, Maxwell Holland and Jamie Lumsden, were all selected and started for the England College side against Scotland, in a hard fought 1-1 draw played up in Gateshead.

Secondly our young U/19 ‘Wood’ Elite squad, overcame a very good Monkseaton College 3-1 in the National Cup Quarter Final. With striker Raheem Parker-Sterling netting a brace and England debutee Jamie Lumsden netting a brave third to seal our deserved semi final place. It was perhaps our superior firepower that proved the difference.

DSC_0577Lastly on a mild St George’s Day, Boreham Wood’s First Team travelled to the County ground in Letchworth, to play their part in a thrilling Herts Senior Cup final, with Bishops Stortford, that ended 1-1 after extra time. A thrilling and heart stopping penalty shoot out then ensued, which in truth saw ‘Wood’ deservedly win out on penalties, after being totally dominant in this cup tie from start to finish.

DSC_1046Even so ‘Wood’ had goalkeeper James ‘Rusty’ Russell to thank for their cup triumph, after he brilliantly saved three out of four of Stortford’s spot kicks, while Wood expertly netted all three of ours, through Callum Reynolds, Ben Nunn and Lee Angol.

Finally at around 10.30pm and after more than a 120 minutes of football and a dramatic penalty shootout, it was ‘Wood’ captain Sam Cox, who held the impressive trophy aloft to the delight of the players, staff and travelling Wood supporters, as we were rightly crowned the Champions of Hertfordshire for the fifth time in our history, it was a fitting way to end our 65th anniversary season…

YOUNGSTERS LOANED TO BILLERICAY TOWN

Boreham Wood Football Club have put two first team squad players out on loan for a month at Billericay Town in the Ryman Premier Division.

Billy Lobjoit, the clubs young star striker, who has been unlucky not to be given more match time recently. Hopefully Billy will get amongst the goals whilst at Billericay and gain much needed match fitness, and then return to Meadow Park full of confidence in time for the run in.

The other ‘Wood’ player joining Billericay Town on loan is the clubs England College International defender Sam Doolan. Sam is captain of ‘Wood’s’ development squad and will improve hugely from his loan experience.

Boreham Wood manager Ian Allinson said, “I need to get match time into both players for the run in, and having spoken to Craig Edwards at Billaricay, I am sure both boys will benefit from their experience and hopefully it works out well for all concerned…”

Everyone at Boreham Wood Football Club wish Billy and Sam the best of luck during their loan spell, and look forward to them rejoining us with games and match fitness under their belts ready for the season run in.
