Boreham Wood FC can with a heavy heart, announce that we have accepted an offer from the Irish champions Dundalk FC, for the services of our midfield dynamo Conor Clifford.
Conor who hasn’t featured since just before Christmas, had needed to return home for personal reasons in the interim and, the club has taken all those factors into consideration.
Everyone at Boreham Wood Football Club, would like to thank Conor for his work ethic, his efforts and his contribution to our continued progress and we of course wish him and his family all the very best for the future.
Club Chairman Danny Hunter Said “In truth we didn’t want Conor to leave us. That said I spoke with him at length and he just felt he’d been away from his native Dublin for over 10 years now and it was time for him to return home.
“He’s also joining the Irish Champions Dundalk, which is barely an hour away from his front door and with their pre season starting as early as this week he can get up to speed with his new teammates and settle in. He can I believe as Dundalk are the reigning Irish Champions, look forward to a Champions League qualifier sometime in July.
Hunter concluded “My abiding memory of Conor, will be him smashing home our winning penalty at Aldershot last season. It gave us a 2-1 win and lifeline with just two games to go, we took the lifeline, we stayed up with the lads help and we haven’t looked back since. As for the deal, it was in truth a very simple and speedy one. I’d like to thank both the Dundalk first team manager Stephen Kenny and their General manager Martin Connolly for their help in putting it to bed so quickly and I hope Conor’s a huge success for them.
