Boreham Wood are delighted to announce that Arsenal Football Club, as a contribution to Non-league day this Saturday, will donate their Official Club Coach to transport our 1st team to Salisbury City for its Conference South top of the table clash..
Boreham Wood who have looked after the Arsenal Ladies for the last 17 seasons have once again been blown away by the kindness and generosity shown by the Directors of Arsenal and their Coach company Ellisons.
Boreham Wood Manager Ian Allinson who made over a 100 appearances himself for the Gunners said “when our Chairman told me what Arsenal have done for us, it took me back a bit. I can still remember clearly when I played for Arsenal, it was such a special time for me and when we travelled on the team coach we wanted for nothing. I know I’m biased but this type of gesture is just typical of Arsenal. They are class, they never forget the underdog and I can’t tell you how appreciative we all are that they have supported not just Non-league day but ourselves in this way” Allinson concluded
Arsenal’s Club Secretary David Miles said: “We have enjoyed a very strong relationship with Boreham Wood FC over the years and are delighted to have the opportunity to help the team with their travel this weekend with the kind assistance of Ellisons coaches. We wish Ian Allinson and his players all the best for the match.”
