Boreham Wood have named three new signings ahead of their 2017/18 National League campaign.

Kieran Murtagh, Dean Wells and Paul Benson have become the latest recruits at Meadow Park.

Murtagh scored five goals in more than 100 appearances for Woking.

The midfielder has had spells at Charlton Athletic, Yeovil Town and Wycombe Wanderers.

He told the club website: “I am very pleased, I think that a new challenge is what I need right now.

“After being at Woking for a few years, I think that it is good to change things up a little bit and see where it takes you.

“I believe that I can bring quality into the middle of the park; me and Ricco (Mark Ricketts) have played together before so I think that partnership will be very important for us this season.”

Former Stevenage defender Wells signed on the same day as his new teammate on a one-year-deal with an option to extend.

The 32-year-old stated: “It all fitted in nicely and I will be doing a bit of coaching in the academy as well which helped.

“I will also be able to start the college course I wanted to with the days off I will get, so I will be doing something that I love, while still playing football.

“I had a chat with the manager and the chairman and the direction that they are going in and the amount of time and effort that they seem to put in to the place convinced me.”

Wells began his career at Brentford, but made just one appearance.

He signed for League Two Stevenage for a reported £25,000 fee.

Their third signing was announcing Benson who also joined on a one-year deal with the option of a second.

Benson signed following his release from Dagenham and Redbridge where he scored six goals in 37 appearances.

The striker will perform both a playing and a coaching role.

“Playing wise I want to bring some goals to the team,” said the 37-year-old.

“I will also bring that bit of leadership and experience that every club needs and hopefully try and push them on to an even higher finish than last year.

“The club finished 11th last term and that was a great achievement for them, so if we can go one better than that this season then we have got a really good chance of trying to get into the play-offs.

Manager Luke Garrard is delighted with the signings.
