Boreham Wood Football Club are delighted to announce that following the recent contract extension of Ricky Shakes. That fullback Ben Nunn, centre halves Josh Hill and Callum Reynolds, plus midfield linchpin Scott Thomas, have all signed contract extensions and committed to playing their football at Meadow Park next season.
Ben Nunn joined us from Chelmsford City three seasons ago and has quickly clocked up over a 100 games for ‘the Wood’. Ben has proved to be a real fans favourite ever since.
Callum Reynolds arrived from Tamworth three years ago, like Ben he is very popular with both the supporters and his teammates. Callum’s consistency and quiet assurance has culminated in him being made team captain this season.
Josh Hill arrived from Dartford half way through last season and his performances earnt him a contract last summer. However since the arrival of Ben Martin, Josh has improved immeasurably since his place in the starting line up, has been challenged..
Scott Thomas arrived from Chesham Utd this season, after Chesham’s play off defeat to St Albans. Scott is another player who has improved immeasurably due to the competition for places within the squad and is rated highly by Manager Ian Allinson for his work ethic and team performances.
Wood manager Ian Allinson said “Ben is a popular lad within our dressing room and as far as I’m concerned, is as talented a right back as you’ll find at our level. He’s a modern day fullback who can defend but also give us great options over the halfway line. As for Josh he’s young, a great lad and is improving all the time. The arrival of Ben Martin has meant Josh has had to work very hard to get his place back in my starting eleven and its that competition for places that’s really improved him”. Callum’s done a great job for me and the team, that’s why he’s my skipper. Scott is very often our unsung hero, he goes about his work quietly, mops things up and does the ugly jobs well..
Allinson went on “When I spoke to the Chairman about getting the majority of our present squad signed. It was difficult for him as the budget and what league we might be in is yet to be decided. The Chairman in all fairness to him, went away to look at the figures and he has came back to me this week with two budgets dependent on which league we’re in, which is great news”.
Allinson concluded “I will now sit down with the Chairman, the lads and with my management team and with a few player additions, we can hopefully continue the progress that this club is making both on and off the pitch”.
