Boreham Wood have said that the club have been turned down for a loan.

The National League side say that this is ‘despite assurances given to the club by representatives from both Sports England and the National League’.

Chairman Danny Hunter said: “The loan rejection letter does state that we run the club correctly, but it’s still disappointing that on a number of levels the letter appears not to understand we are still in a pandemic, that we are still in trouble, and if we continue to play without crowds and with a closed facility, like many clubs and their owners, we’ll struggle to operate.

“As it is, it will take us all many years to repay the existing debts, and these Winter Survival loans with their preferential rates and terms were seen as a real help…

“Perhaps they’ve tried letting us down softly by telling us that we are a well-run football club, but to acknowledge in the letter the large amount of monies we’ve lost with no crowds, no astro facility hire, no bar sales and no function hire, but then infer that because I’ve deferred my tax, remortgaged my home and already taken out two business interruption loans, that we don’t need their help to get through this season, is to forget the assurances given.”
