It's Big News For Boreham Wood As Improvements Pushed Through

Boreham Wood chairman Danny Hunter said the green light for the club’s stadium redevelopment has been nearly 20 in the making.

Wood are celebrating after the council rubber stamped plans to erect a stand behind one of the goals at Meadow Park.

They hope that’s just the beginning - plans are also afoot for an incredible East Stand which would include a sports and community hub.

Hunter revealed he has been trying to improve the ground since before the turn of the millennium.

He thinks the stadium will be of huge to the town and with Wood chasing promotion he hopes one day it can play host to EFL football.

“I suppose this is 19 seasons of perseverance coming to fruition and once again it’s proof of the small steps progress that we’re continually striving to make at the club.

“So, I’d like to thank the local residents, thank my very loyal staff and thank the people of Borehamwood for their patience and for believing and supporting my vision even if it’s taken a while.

“I’d also like to thank the council’s planning department, the unseen but vital council officers and the local councillors for their help, guidance and their continued belief in what we’re all trying to achieve here as a progressive community club, council and town.

“I’d like to think, that this next phase of my chairmanship, is the beginning of a new era of success for our football club both on-and-off the park.

“I believe a strong club benefits our residents, rewards our fans, and is the reward for our club’s community ethos, that raises our town’s profile and Football League dreams.

“I’m bursting with pride at what we’re achieving, it’s not been a quick fix by a fly-by-night owner.

“It’s taken 19 seasons of hard work, perseverance, love, care and more than a few sleepless nights to get us this far. And after all that, I’m still nowhere near where I want to be, in order to take our town to a place that none of us could have dreamed of when I took over in 1999.”
