Boreham Wood FC is delighted to announce the signing of fans favourite Tyrone Marsh from Stevenage FC for an undisclosed fee.
Tyrone returns to Meadow Park after missing just four months of our current season, but importantly on an 18-month deal, following his departure from Hertfordshire rivals Stevenage.
Marsh began his career with Oxford United, graduating from their youth Academy to make his first senior appearance in 2011. Tyrone would go onto make 14 appearances at League Two level over two seasons before departing the Kassam Stadium.
The next stage of his career saw him sign permanently at a host of clubs in the south of England, including Ebbsfleet United, Torquay United and Dover Athletic, before signing with Macclesfield Town ahead of the 2017/18 season.
It was while with the Silkmen that Tyrone made a name for himself at National League level as a mainstay in the Macclesfield Town side who were crowned Champions of the Vanarama National League in the 2017/18 season. Ty made 44 appearances at Moss Rose, scoring 10 goals, and in the following 2018-19 season, with the Silkmen in League Two, he made 29 total appearances. However, with Macclesfield Town in financial difficulty and with a year still left on his deal at Moss Rose, Tyrone signed off his contract with Macclesfield by mutual consent, and signed permanently with the Wood in the summer of 2019.
Despite his impressive season with the Silkmen in 2017/18, it could be argued that Tyrone perhaps played the best football of his career to date last season under Wood manager Luke Garrard, scoring 16 goals in 40 appearances.
In that time Tyrone developed an outstanding strike partnership with Kabby Tshimanga, which proved to be one the most fruitful across the whole of English football, with the pair scoring a combined 35 goals between them in a shortened COVID-19 curtailed season.
However, despite Wood reaching the end of season play-offs by finishing in 5th place, the campaign ultimately finished in heartache for Luke Garrard’s men with a semi-final defeat at the hands of eventual play-off winners Harrogate Town.
Despite the club’s best efforts, we were unable to keep Tyrone at Meadow Park in the summer, with interest from a host of other National League and Football League clubs. However, with the striker’s game time being limited at the Lamex Stadium, when we were informed of his availability the Club moved quickly to secure his return to Meadow Park, in a deal that Ty himself best described as “coming home.”
Subject to the FA’s and the National League’s approval, Tyrone will be available immediately for selection with Wood scheduled to travel to Maidenhead United this coming Saturday, 6th February in the Vanarama National League.
Upon Ty’s return to Meadow Park, Gaffer Luke Garrard said, “I am delighted to welcome Tyrone back. He knows the Club well, as well as knowing what I expect from him, the team, and what we want to achieve here. “He will come in and bring both goals and added competition to the forward line. He is someone who we are fully aware of in terms of what he adds both on and off the pitch.
“I want to thank the Chairman for sanctioning the deal as it shows the support and faith he has in me and the dressing room to add the likes of Marshy to the squad given the circumstances and at this stage of the season.” Garrard concluded.
Tyrone will wear the number 23 shirt at Meadow Park.
Welcome home, Ty!
