During the recent half term break Boreham Wood Football Club hosted its February soccer course. Over 100 different kids attended from Monday to Friday, in what was an excellent week with friends made, some fantastic skills and goals on show.

Such high numbers are starting to be a regular thing at the clubs soccer courses, as the community department continues to grow and bring football to more people in the local area.

Tuesday saw the course also use the facilities at Brookside boys club and Wednesday saw all the children be the twelfth man, as Boreham Wood Under 19s, played there National League Cup game against Kidderminster Harriers and inspired them to a 4-3 victory.

During the week they also got the chance to meet all the first team players and our management team. Which went down very well with all the young Wood supporters. The week culminated in a heart warming presentation on the Friday. At which point every participant received an adult and child tickets for the York City game the next day, along with so many other awards.

Community Manager Ken Headington commented on the course “Its really pleasing to have such a fantastic turn out, especially considering on the Monday the temperatures were very low. It shows how we are now reaching out to so many new people in the community, as there was so many new faces there. Hopefully this can in turn be reflected in our match day attendances, by getting local boys, girls and family’s supporting the Wood on a match day.

He added “The community side of things is growing at the club, with the new mascot packages and other offers recently added. This will hopefully give our match days a different dimension and feel. Let’s hope we see more of the community at our home game against Bromley on Saturday. We also hope to see everyone at our upcoming Easter half term soccer course”
