The PASE Academy’s coaches have welcomed over 400 trialists to our Meadow Park ground across just 3 trial dates, with many more registering their interest in the scheme and are still to trial. With that amount of interest, our PASE Academy have schedule even more trial dates than ever before.

The PASE Scheme started by Boreham Wood Chairman Danny Hunter has over the years has come on leaps and bounds from its inauguration in 2002. The PASE Scheme and youth structure in that time has won National Titles, multiple leagues and cups, while producing 14 England Internationals at Schools and College level over the last 6 years. 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.
“In fact Lee Hodson, and Matthew Whichelow both played first team football with Championship Watford FC, Kyle Vassell is now doing well at Peterborough United. 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. Pelly has since (for an undisclosed transfer fee) joined The Skrill Conference Champions Luton Town FC on a permanent basis and he is doing fantastically well.” Hunter Concluded.
Overall the coaches have been impressed with the lads who have trialed, and Academy Director Luke Garrard said, “We are very happy with the response we have had this year in terms of student/player numbers. 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…”
