Boreham Wood captured sought-after midfielder Tom Champion on a one-year deal in the summer of 2017.

A short spell with Barnet followed his time in the Watford Academy before a five-year spell with Bishop’s Stortford. Stints with Braintree Town and Dartford followed, where he played a pivotal role in the latter’s promotion to the Conference.

Champion would also have a spell with Cambridge and a second stint at Barnet. He again achieved promotion to the Football League with Cambridge, captaining the side in their first season back in the division.

Tom is the club’s new Vice-captain and will combine his playing duties with a coaching role in the club’s PASE Academy.
