Boreham Wood have made their second signing of the summer, re-signing Lee Angol on a season-long loan deal from Luton Town.

Angol, 19, joins from the Hatters after agreeing a one-year contract at Kenilworth Road earlier in the day, following his release by former club Wycombe Wanderers. 

The 6ft2in forward impressed on loan at Meadow Park last term, scoring eight times in 22 outings for Ian Allinson's side.

Speaking to the club's website, Allinson said: "I’m very grateful to our chairman for his perseverance in this matter and to John Still and to Terry Harris at Luton for agreeing to the deal.

"Lee was always my number one summer target and both John and Terry recognise, that young players like Lee, need to be playing regular competitive football to develop."

The Wood boss continued: "I remember when I was a pro', it was not always great to be in a pro' set up all week, train full time and then have no game on a Saturday afternoon.

"Our arrangement with Luton, will give the player regular football on a Saturday, as such it will be good for all parties and I fully expect Lee to improve enormously, be a top player at our level and to be amongst the top goal scorers in our division."

Sutton-born Angol began his professional career with Tottenham Hotspur but was released in 2012 before joining the Chairboys. In two years at Adams Park, Angol made just three substitute appearances for the League Two side, finding more regular first team action away from the club via a series of loan deals.

The winger-cum-forward scored five times in 14 appearances for Hendon, having initially joined the Ryman Premier League side on loan in January 2013, before returning for a second in August.

Angol then moved out on a temporary basis once more, joining Conference South side Maidenhead on a month's loan in October 2013.

In January 2014, Angol joined the Wood on loan for the second half of the campaign, making 12 starts and ten substitute appearances, scoring eight goals.

Speaking on the club website, Luton boss John Still highlighted Angol's 'potential' and confirmed the attacker would continue to train with Luton during the season.
