On Saturday, the Wood travel to Barrow, before a home fixture against Leyton Orient on Saturday, September 9. Luke Garrard’s men have been in strong form this season, currently sitting inside the playoffs in seventh place, and want you to come along for the ride.
Rewind back to Saturday, May 1 2016 and the side were playing the biggest game in their history. An underdog club, who had fought tooth and nail to get into the National League, were staring relegation in the face. With just one defeat, all of their wildest dreams would lay in tatters, and they’d be punched straight back into the National League South.
With Guisely storming to an early two-goal lead in their own relegation decider, Boreham Wood needed a victory against bottom placed Welling United to haul themselves back above the Yorkside side and out of the drop zone.
Victories against Guiseley and Aldershot Town had lifted them out of the relegation zone prior to the match, but one final win was required to secure their safety.
Goals from Luke Howell, Clovis Kamdjo and an own goal from Welling sent the Wood Army into raptures, with a 3-0 win ensuring their dream continued for another season.
A little over a year later and the Wood have entered the season as equals, an 11th placed finish in the 2016/17 season cementing them as a recognised National League outfit.
While the Wood remain an underdog side in the division, their place within it is undeniable and well-earned. Against Tranmere Rovers last Saturday, the Wood actually led the National League table for 22 minutes, an incredible feat for a side who were playing their football in the Isthmian Leagues just 10-years ago.
Seven matches into the campaign and the Wood now sit inside the playoffs in seventh place, their progress within the last 10-years is undeniable.
Prior to the match against Welling, the Wood released the video above, calling on supporters to travel in their droves to support their bid for National League survival and you responded magnificently.
The video proves a timely reminder of just how far the club have come in the last few years and the Wood want to continue to celebrate their achievements with their loyal supporters.
Boreham Wood called on their 12th man in May 2016 and are calling on you again now. The club need its supporters now as much as they did then; so, join the Wood on Saturday by travelling to barrow and by securing your ticket for the fixture vs Leyton Orient below.
