Boreham Wood have signed striker Junior Morias on a free transfer following his release by Wycombe Wanderers earlier this season.

The 19-year-old forward impressed on loan at Meadow Park last term, scoring eight goals in 15 appearances for Ian Allinson's men.

Speaking to the club's website, Allinson said: "Junior is a special talent [who] needs someone to believe in him. He has a great knack of scoring goals; works very hard and gives us another dimension.

"He will add goals, add quality and add options to our squad that will be vital to our club's play-off and promotion aspirations this season."

Allinson continued: “I’m very grateful to the chairman for managing to get this deal done. We have agreed with Luton Town that he can train there full time while they assess him. We already have a similar arrangement with John Still and Terry Harris regarding Lee Angol.

"Young players like Lee and Junior need to be playing regular football to develop as players but it helps them to remain in a professional set up and train full time," he explained.

"This deal is good for all parties as its long term and that allows the player to focus for the season. I expect Junior, like Lee Angol, to be a top player at our level and be amongst the top goal getters and assist performers in our division."

Morias signed a one-year extension to his deal with the Chairboys in June, but left the Buckinghamshire club at the beginning of September, though Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth would not be drawn on the reasons why.

Speaking to the Bucks Free Press about Morias' departure from Adams Park, Ainsworth said: "All I want to say about that is Junior's a fantastic, bubbly character around the place and I'm sure he'll go on to make a good career. I wish him all the best in his departure from here.

"I'd rather not comment on how it came about, out of respect for Junior. He wants to go and forge a career and I think he'll do well wherever he ends up."

In total, Morias made 31 appearances for the Chairboys in all competitions, but only two starts - both of which came in cup competitions.
