Matt Rhead signed for Boreham Wood on a permanent deal in February 2020 until the rest of the season in hope that he can bolster our attack in a push for promotion to the Football League.
Rhead most recently featured for Billericay Town who play their football in the National League South. After being offered a big money deal in the summer following the promotion of then current side Lincoln City to League One, things didn’t quite go to plan as Glenn Taplin parted ways with the club meaning the Essex side would take a major hit financially thus leaving Rhead to only spend a total of six weeks at the New Lodge making 11 appearances before being made a free agent.
In 2012, Rhead signed for Mansfield Town where he featured 120 times across a three-season spell. He played a major role in their promotion to the Football League in the 2012/13 campaign as Champions, featuring in 37 of the 46 league games.
‘Rheady’ then went onto sign for National League side Lincoln City where yet again, he played a crucial role in helping them win the title and gain promotion to League Two, when he finished as his sides top goal scorer. The following year, he was the main striker for his side when they made a record-breaking run to the Quarter-finals of the FA Cup where they faced Burnley.
Last season, Rhead helped Lincoln gain promotion to League One which would see his successful time at Lincoln come to an end as he was warned that game time would be a minimum if he were at stay at the club.
