Boreham Wood Football Club Chairman Danny Hunter would like to thank the club’s principle sponsors Barnet and Southgate College and our other loyal sponsors, including the Mango Tree, Borehamwood and Elstree Town Council, Lexus, Reggiani, Davis Bonley, Red Rock Entertainment, Gary Boniface and GBEI, Brend hotels, the Lunchbox, Village Hotels, Carlsberg, Enfield skips, Barkers, Oliver & Akers and our numerous stadium sponsors, for supporting us in what is the club’s historic 70th Anniversary season.
Hunter spoke to the club’s official website: “We’re excited to be building a new stand, we feel we’re in a good play-off position, we’ve got a Herts Senior Cup Final to try and win and all our players, staff, sponsors and supporters seem very happy.
“So, I’d like to thank everyone and that includes our incredible PASE Academy lads and their supportive families, for already making our 70th Anniversary Gala Dinner a complete sell-out, with over a month to go.”
The Wood Chairman continued: “It’s incredible how things are changing here for the better – ten years ago, you couldn’t sell a ticket for our presentations evening for love nor money haha – now ten years later, it’s pretty much a sell out before a ticket is even sold…
“So I’m very thankful to everyone who now contributes and supports us both on-and-off the pitch… In truth, our gala dinner is a special night for our staff, supporters and our players. It’s a celebration of a year’s hard work and solid commitment and it gives me a chance to say thank you to everyone personally.
“Who knows where we’ll finally finish in this league, but we’re still in there giving it our best and I’m very proud of that, considering we were most people’s favourites for relegation back in August. Trust me, if we make it – we’ll be ready for the play-offs and the new play-off format and we will fear no one.
“We already know we’re a small club, but we are talented, we are united, and we are difficult to beat. We will of course need every one of our fans to come and continue to support us and we will of course need our whole town to get behind us, but belief is key, and we genuinely have belief in each other.
“As a club, we’re now over 70-years-old, my young gaffer Luke Garrard is astute, the whole dressing room and staff believe in him, even my 84-year-old mother with her failing memory tells me she believes in him.
“It seems to me, I’ve assembled a special group of people at the club presently, all trying to make me, each other, and the town believe that the impossible is now possible.
“I feel even the doubters are beginning to think we’ve got a shot at this. I just feel a very privileged man at present. I’m working with a group of people who believe in my work ethic and who believe in our football club. That feels special, as it’s a club that my father managed with distinction and when I look back on my dad’s memory, I can’t help but still get emotional.
“What’s being achieved here on-and-off the park is simply amazing, and it would make dad so proud – but whatever happens now and wherever we finish – it will be fantastic to celebrate together, with family and friends, arguably the greatest season ever in our 70-year history.”
