Orient last welcomed Boreham Wood to The Breyer Group Stadium on January 6th, drawing 0-0. The earlier meeting between the two sides was more eventful as Boreham Wood beat the O’s 2-0, the goals scored by Dan Woodards and Kieran Murtagh.

Manager

Luke Garrard played for Tottenham Hotspur in his youth career before enjoying spells at AFC Wimbledon and Boreham Wood as a senior player. He was appointed manager of Boreham Wood in October 2015. Now aged 32, he is one of the youngest managers in the top five divisions.

One to watch

23-year-old forward Morgan Ferrirer rejoined the Wood from Dagenham & Redbridge in February, eight months after originally departing the Club. The former-Arsenal youngster scored 15 goals last season and will be looking to improve his tally in the next campaign.
