Boreham Wood FC are delighted to announce central midfielder Frankie Raymond as the Club’s first summer signing of 2021.
Frankie began his career as a youth team player at Reading, enjoying loan spells with Horsham, Basingstoke Town, Eastleigh and Hungerford Town during his time at the Madejski Stadium. Upon the expiry of his contract with the Royals and following a short-lived spell with Gillingham in 2012, Raymond joined National League South side Eastbourne Borough where he went on to spend two successful seasons.
Over a two-year spell at Priory Lane, and still just a teenager, Raymond made 61 appearances for Eastbourne Borough, scoring 4 goals. It was this form which caught the eye of the Football League and earned Frankie his return to professional football within the EFL, signing for Dagenham & Redbridge for an undisclosed fee in 2014.
After a three-year spell at Victoria Road, Raymond left Dagenham & Redbridge at the conclusion of his contract, opting to join his local side Bromley in the National League.
Having spent the last four seasons with Bromley, amassing over 150 appearances for the Raven’s whilst at Hayes Lane including a FA Trophy final appearance at Wembley Stadium in 2018, ball playing midfielder Raymond joins Boreham Wood with a wealth of experience at National League level.
Upon capturing the signing of Frankie Raymond, Wood Manager Luke Garrard said, “I’m absolutely delighted to have signed Frankie. The minute I walked him around the Club, I knew I wanted to get the deal done. He brings an unbelievable amount of experience at this level and has great quality, which has been evident with 25 assists in his last two seasons with Bromley.
“He will bring a real energy to the midfield and the knack of delivering balls on the money. Not only is Frankie a top player but a great person, and I’m sure he will bring a real feel good factor amongst the squad, and I felt that was a huge plus when we first spoke.” Garrard concluded.
Welcome to Meadow Park, Frankie!
