The community of Borehamwood appears to have been overcome with FA Cup fever, as the Wood prepare to take the famous trophy on tour once again.
We will be bringing the famous trophy to our local schools tomorrow (Tuesday, November 28) and giving every child the chance to get a photo with it.
Excitement surrounding the tour had begun to take over Meadow Park on Saturday, prior to the 2-1 win over Woking, with local children all itching to get a photograph with the cup.
The Wood’s stadium was abuzz with children all talking about the FA Cup visiting their schools on Tuesday, and their chance to see, one of the World’s most famous trophies.
As a community football club, Wood Chairman Danny Hunter wants to ensure that as many people as possible are involved in, what has been, an exciting and historic FA Cup run, which of course is not over just yet.
The Chairman looked after his Sponsors and Hertswood School with the FA Cup in the last round; and having beaten Blackpool 2-1, wanted to now look after the local schools, before finishing off at Barnet Hospital.
The Wood will face Coventry City in the next round of the competition, the match will take place on Sunday, December 3 (2pm) at the Ricoh Arena.
We will need all of the famous Wood Army at the Ricoh Arena, if we are to achieve, what would be the biggest Cup upset in our 70-year history!
Luke Garrard and his men have already made club history and the town proud in the previous round, when they came from behind to knock out League One giants Blackpool 2-1, with a late Dan Holman winner.
Please look at the itinerary below and ensure that your child joins us tomorrow, when we’ll be ready for as many photo opportunities, with our manager and players, to the kids, teachers, parents, patients, nurses and of course the loyal Wood Army – so make sure you don’t miss out!!
