Boreham Wood have signed former Arsenal attacker Anthony Jeffrey for a third spell after Graeme Montgomery joined St Albans City on a three-month loan deal.

Winger Montgomery had been unable to commit to Wood's daytime training schedule due to his job and has therefore been granted a loan switch to National League South side St Albans.

He has today (Friday) gone on holiday for a week and would have missed Wood's National League fixtures against Macclesfield Town and Kidderminster Harriers (Tuesday).

The club have also confirmed outstanding issues with the availability of club captain Sam Cox and striker Charlie MacDonald have been resolved, enabling the pair to remain with the Wood.

Speaking to the club website, boss Ian Allinson said: “It’s good news for the club to get the final daytime issues sorted out with Charlie, Sam and Monty, as these things can prolong themselves and become a distraction we can all do without.

“Monty’s loan to St Albans will be for a 93 days loan period and was a blow initially. However, by him not being able to train during the day - which I understood - and then choosing to go away at such a critical time in our season, it simply made a loan deal or transfer unavoidable.

“When I made him available there was no shortage of takers but a loan was a solution that perhaps suited all parties.

"I have no doubt Monty will do very well at St Albans and as long as we don’t pick up any unforeseen injuries, I will not revisit things with Monty again until January."

Wideman-cum-forward Jeffrey, 20, returns to Meadow Park on loan from Concord Rangers having previously had two spells with the club in recent seasons.

He scored five times in seven outings on loan during the 2013/14 campaing before making a further two league appearances last season after departing Wycombe Wanderers.

Wood boss Allinson said of the capture of Jeffrey: "I’m really excited by this. I’ve had a good chat with him about the importance of showing me a good attitude, about applying himself and about what I expect.

"He understands what I require as he’s worked with me before and if he listens he will give me great options.

"He has pace to burn but more than that he now has a point to prove, as his career in all truth has stalled in the last two seasons."
