That's a very good attendance for Boreham Wood!

I guess that's where they get their money to subsidise the National League side. A shame for their players as they are a very good side.

They are a good team Russell, play the right way. A good manager. But for what.

Shows the difficulty of attracting and retaining support in areas that are saturated with football teams at all levels up to the Prem within travelling distance. What were the ticket prices like there? Suppose that could be a factor if it's not much less than some league clubs

I’m sure I read somewhere this week that the Boreham Wood chairman said he was going to have re-evaluate his financial input as attendances weren’t improving to match their standing in the league.
Must be really hard to attract supporters in the middle of so many bigger clubs.

Would have been happy with a point pre-match but over the moon with it after seeing the other results. The football Gods really are smiling on us this season.

We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.
