Boreham Wood Chairman Danny Hunter believes the appointment of Terry Harris as assistant manager will give the club a huge boost.

Former Dagenham and Redbridge and Luton Town assistant Harris was appointed as the Wood’s assistant manager last week, having worked with experienced manager John Still for over 15 years.

The National League side will be hoping to build on an 11th place finish this time round and speaking to Boreham Wood’s website, chairman Danny Hunter believes Harris’ appointment is a ‘huge gain’. He said: “I think that come the end of last season it was clear that we were perhaps slightly broken in terms of the dressing room “We had taken 22 points from the last 25 games and we made the decision not to offer Junior Lewis further employment.”

“With Luke being the youngest manager in the top five divisions, it just seemed that the one thing we needed was a bit of knowhow, someone who had been there, seen it and done it.

“I have known Terry for the best part of 20 years and the one thing that he will bring to the club is a bit of honesty and integrity, he brings experience of not just football, but life.

“Terry has been a friend to this football club for many years, both himself and Dagenham manager John Still have done a lot of business with the club in terms of loans and players over the years, but it is now time for us to try and take on John and Dagenham on a level footing.

“From there, we see where it takes us, I believe that Terry is a huge gain for us and a huge loss for Dagenham.”

In other news, Cameron Mawer has been promoted to Boreham Wood’s first team coach, having worked with the reserves and elite squad last season, who both won the national double.
