Boreham Wood have made their fifth signing of the summer by bringing in Coventry City defender Jordon Thompson on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old joins following the arrivals of Piero Mingoia, Kabongo Tshimanga, Adam McDonnell and Tyrone Marsh.

Thompson’s youth career began at Queens Park Rangers before joining Coventry in 2017. He quickly signed a professional deal before going on to make his first team debut in a Checkatrade Trophy win against West Bromwich Albion under-21s.

He made eight appearances for the Sky Blues in 2018/19, four of which came in League One, while he also made nine outings during a short loan spell at National League side Barrow.

Speaking to the club website, Thompson said: “I’m pleased to get the deal over the line. As soon as I knew there was interest, I bit at the chance to come down here. I’m at the age now where I just want to play men’s football week in week out. I’ve had a little taste so I already know what expect.”

Wood manager Luke Garrard added: “We are thankful to bring Jordon to the club. He’s athletic, competitive, handles the ball superbly, very powerful and adds to the group that we’ve already got.

“I remember his time at Barrow and he was impressive there, he’s settled in lovely already and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the squad moving forward.”
