We take a look at our Hertfordshire opponents ahead of next season

HistoryThe Wood were established in 1948, after two clubs Boreham Rovers and Royal Retournez merged together. The club started life playing in lower leagues such as the Mid-Herts league, Spartan League, and Parthenon league.In 1966 the club moved to the Athenian league and after 2 promotions rose to the top division. In 1977, they entered the Isthmian League Premier Division and a 27-year period saw the club continuously ‘bounce’ between leagues as they were continuously relegated and promoted to the same division.Switches between leagues followed. A 2004 switch to the Southern Football League Eastern Division, followed by 2006 a switch back to the Isthmian League Premier Division took place but, in 2010, a 2-0 win over Kinstonian in the play-off final meant that for the first time in their history Boreham Wood reached the Conference South.Just 5 years later Boreham Wood made it into the National league for the first time in their history. A second-place finish in the Conference South saw the Wood into the play-offs, and wins over Havant & Waterlooville and Whitehawk secured their National League place.Last SeasonBoreham Wood managed to secure a top half finish last season, two places and 10 points behind The Silkmen in 11th. A total of 58 points was achieved by 15 wins, 13 draws, and 18 defeats.Striker Morgan Ferrier lead the scoring charts for the Wood, with 12 goals in 32 appearances, but the England C striker has recently left for fellow National League side Dagenham & Redbridge.At the mid-way point of the season Boreham Wood were 8th in the table and in the mix for a play-off place. However, they couldn’t keep up their playoff credentials and gradually lost track of the top 5.The season ended on a sour note for the Wood as they picked up just 6 points from their last 7 games, a run of form, manager Luke Garrard, will hope won’t be brought into next season.How to get thereBy train: Macclesfield – London Euston – London St Pancras Intl – Elstree & BorehamwoodBy Car: Get on the M1 in Leicestershire from the A523, A52, A515 and A50 – Follow the M1 to A414 in Hertfordshire and take exit 7-8 from M1 – Follow the A414 and B5378 to Broughinge Road in BorehamWood and your destination will be on your right.Address/postcode: Broughinge Rd, Boreham Wood, WD6 5AL
