Boreham Wood secured their place in the Herts Senior Cup final, with a solid 2-0 win at home to Kings Langley.

Michael Folivi (39) opened the scoring for Luke Garrard’s side, with a classy first half finish.

Morgan Ferrier (62) then netted for the second time in as many appearances, with a towering header in the second half.

Luke Garrard made a number of changes for the Herts Senior Cup tie, with Ollie Harfield, Sorba Thomas and Michael Folivi all coming into the side, amongst others.

There was an energetic start to the fixture from both sides, with Ferrier testing Martin Bennett early on, but the stopper easily saved his header.

Michael Folivi had looked bright in the early stages and weaved his way inside the visitor’s penalty area with some smart footwork, but his shot was saved by Bennett.

The stopper was then out quickly once again, to gather Harfield’s cross. Ferrier cut inside and stung a shot at Bennett, but it struck the side netting.

Gareth Price had been the danger man for Kings Langley in the early stages but his first real chance came shortly after the half-hour mark. The forward arrowed an effort at the Wood goal, but it was blocked by Jamie Turley.

Folivi broke the deadlock five minutes from half-time, the on-loan forward got in-behind his marker and coolly slid the ball past Bennett from inside the area.

Grant Smith had to be at his best to keep out Keiran Turner’s powerful free-kick, pushing the effort out of the bottom corner, with a stretching save.

An early second half effort from Thomas looked promising, but he blasted his volley over the crossbar, after meeting Harfield’s cross.

Ferrer then doubled the advantage for the Wood on the hour mark. Turley had nodded a corner back across the box and Ferrier leapt to head past Bennett.

Davey had put in a solid shift as the central man in the back three and twice beat danger man Price to the ball, in threatening positions.

Balanta tried his luck from range but fizzled his 30-yard effort over the crossbar. Folivi then worked his way into the box, but sent a diving header past the post.

Thomas would make way for fellow PASE player Alex Morgan and the youngster looked bright in an unfamiliar wing-back role.

Price had arguably Kings Langley’s best chance of the game, 10 minutes from time. The forward took the ball on the turn and twisted an effort at Smith, who was down to punch it out of the bottom corner.

Morgan received the ball on the right and looped a promising cross into the area, but the visitors were able to head away from danger.

Jeffers then cut inside for one final Wood chance, but his thrashed effort was over the crossbar.
