Boreham Wood Football Club can announce the sale of the very popular Anthony Jeffrey to Forest Green Rovers for an undisclosed figure..
The transfer was completed on transfer deadline day but was subject to an immediate loan back being agreed by the player and both clubs.
As such though much detail had to be worked through, it was deemed to be good business for BWFC and all parties..
Chairman Danny Hunter said “it’s important that our younger players like Anthony are allowed to progress their careers, as long as they give everything they have while at the club. That has happened with Anthony this season and the way Forest Green went about their business meant we could negotiate a way forward intelligently, especially with us being in such a precarious position”.
Hunter went on “Dale Vince the Forest Green owner was very sympathetic to our dilemma of not wanting to lose one of our talisman at this time and with the transfer window closing. As such he worked closely with me to find a suitable working solution for both our clubs, both our managers and of course Anthony Jeffrey”..
“The good thing is that Anthony can see that his career has began to take off while he’s been with us. He has assured me that until he actually goes to Forest Green, that he will give everything he’s got for the club, the team and our supporters. I now expect him to play an even bigger part in our survival hopes”.. Hunter concluded.
