As a thank you for the greatly improved home and away support shown by everyone this season, Boreham Wood chairman Danny Hunter will once again be putting on a free continental breakfast, for travelling supporters, in the Gallery Suite.
The continental breakfast will be served before the club depart the short distance, up the road, to Clarence Park, for the televised 12.30 kick off.
Every adult BWFC supporter who has breakfast at the club, will also receive a free drinks voucher (one voucher per person). This can be redeemed at the bar directly after your return, providing that you are back by 4pm.
As has been well publicised, the Wood have drawn local rivals St Albans in the FA Cup Fourth Round Qualifying. And, the Boreham Wood Chairman hopes that a full stomach and the promise of a pint after the game, will make the short seven-mile journey to Clarence Park, all the more palatable.
The clubhouse bar will be open from 9am, for all travelling Wood army, and we feel that it would give our supporters the correct type of meeting place, prior to this highly anticipated FA Cup clash.
This must-watch fixture is made all the more fascinating, as it will see the very astute, present Wood manager Luke Garrard, go up against his, and the club’s, wily old gaffer, Ian Allinson. And, you can rest assured, no quarter from either manager will be given, or asked, once the referee blows his whistle.
Allinson managed at Meadow Park between 2004-2005 and then more successfully from 2008-2015, as he took the Wood into the top tier of non-league football, for the first time in the club’s history. Albeit, with a great deal of assistance from Luke Garrard, Mario Noto and chairman Danny Hunter.
Boreham Wood Football Club, as you know, love these big cup days, and have become used to the pressure that these matches bring. Saturday is a day that the club have looked forward to for many a long year, and It is vital that the town, the supporters and the people of Boreham Wood, no matter where you now live, come out in your droves.
So, make sure that you find your old scarves, dust down your rattle and make sure you drag along a friend, or family member, to give the players and the gaffer all the support you can, as we take on our oldest and biggest adversaries.
The Wood, are at present, the third highest goal scorers in the National League, we sit just a point out of the play offs and we are just six points off the top-of-the-table. So, the scene is set and the match should prove to be an exciting, action packed cup tie for the whole 90 minutes, with to the winner the spoils.
With just seven miles separating the two rivals, this is a cup tie for the ages and will surely go to the top of a whole host of historic games between the clubs.
Wood chairman Danny Hunter said: “If our supporters are going to go to just one of our games this season, then please let it be this one.
“This is the two top non-league sides in Hertfordshire, this is the FA Cup and this is the game where just one win could give you a shot at a pro club. Plus, of course, there are more than a few years of bragging rights at stake here haha, so we are going to need our fans there…
“So, I urge our fans to get in their cars, get on the trains, get on the free minibuses provided and simply have a great footballing day, as they sing themselves hoarse. I say this because I know our fans can make the difference, and we plan on not only being in the FA Cup first round draw come the games end, but we want to make sure we come back to a very proud town come Saturday night.”
