The Wood are back at home this Saturday, September 29 (3pm), when we welcome Harrogate Town to Meadow Park. Here’s our preview…
Boreham Wood Football Club have now moved onto an online ticketing system and ticket details can be found HERE. Ticket prices are as follows: Adults £18; OAPS £13, under 16’s £8 and under 12’s £4 (subject to booking fee).
These prices are to sit or stand. The West and East stands are seated, and the North and South ends are standing.
We advise that all supporters planning to attend BWFC matches at Meadow Park, purchase tickets beforehand.
Once purchased, tickets are available to download to supporter’s phones, are accessible on the Ticket Arena app, and can also be printed at home and brought to the game for entry.
Tickets will still be available to purchase on the day of the game, but at an increased rate of £2.
For home supporters, cash payments will be available on the East Stand turnstile, and card payments in the Gallery Suite bar. Away supporters will also be able to purchase tickets on the away gate in the West Stand, with cash.
The match will be segregated, and the nearest public car park is stationed in Brook Road and adjacent to stadium.
Luke Garrard lost Mark Ricketts and Danny Woodards during the match against Eastleigh, due to slight muscle injuries, but said in his post-match interview, that he hopes to see them return.
Angelo Balanta and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild were also absent and will be subject to fitness tests ahead of the game.
Tom Champion has served his one-match suspension and will once again be available for selection.
The Wood suffered back-to-back losses for the first time this season, as Eastleigh scored a 79th minute winner on Tuesday night, in a tight affair away from home.
The side had lost to National League favourites Salford City in the match prior, but had been in strong form before that.
The Tuesday previous they had inflicted an emphatic 4-0 victory on play-off hopefuls Sutton United, in a dominant performance.
Striker Joshua Umerah remains in good form, with five goals so far this season, his last coming in the loss to Salford City.
Boreham Wood remain unbeaten at home this campaign and will be looking to retain that record on Saturday.
Managed by 40-year-old Simon Weaver, Harrogate Town were only promoted into the National League this season, but have started very strongly.
They topped the table just over a week ago and currently sit in third place, on 26-points, having drawn 0-0 with Wrexham last time out.
One to Watch – Jack Muldoon
A National League winner with Lincoln City in the 2016/17 campaign, Jack Muldoon is experienced at National League level.
Standing at 5ft 10ins tall, Muldoon netted 10 times for AFC Fylde last season, as he helped the side to a Play-Off place.
A versatile forward, who can play either on the wing, or up-front, Muldoon joined Harrogate to much excitement, following the expiration of his contract with AFC Fylde.
Muldoon already has six goals so far this season and will be one to watch out for at Meadow Park on Saturday.
From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“It will be nice to be back at home after three away journeys in Sutton, Salford and Eastleigh.
“Harrogate will be tough. I have watched them at length and they have got good personnel in forward areas and wide areas.
“Joe Leesley I like a lot, Jack Muldoon played at this level with AFC Fylde last year and won it with Lincoln. Callum Howe is a right-side centre half who played at Lincoln and got his move to Port Vale.
“At Harrogate, there is a mentality and a positive mindset throughout the whole club in terms of winning football matches.
“They have taken to the National League superbly and I wrote in my programme notes how well they have done. They have scored a hell of a lot of goals, just short of two a game.
“I need a reaction, as we had not had back-to-back defeats this year. We did last year, in a similar sort of period and I have got to be honest, I have looked at a few stats of late and we then went on an 11-game unbeaten run.”
