Garrard has signed a new deal that will keep him at Meadow Park until the end of the 2019/20 season. The 32-year-old has been a player, coach, academy director and now manager at the Vanarama National League club.

Wood are currently in 6th place in the table as they chase promotion to League Two, and Garrard had this to say on his new deal as he spoke to the club website:

“I have obviously spoken to the Chairman at length about it and while my contract wasn’t up until next year, he has extended it further. That shows a belief in me and a belief in what we are doing as a club, so yeah, I am very happy.

“Now probably is our most successful period as a club, for example, beating Blackpool in the FA Cup First Round Proper this year was an achievement and creating history was massive.

“Moving forward, in terms of sitting sixth currently, with 14 games left, we have put ourselves in a good position. But, we can’t rest on our laurels, we have to continue doing the hard work and collectively trying to strive on, and then, who knows?

“For me, what makes this club special, is the people within it. I have got to be honest, it is a unique club, it is young, hungry and energetic.

“There are staff in key areas, that are probably – in other people’s eyes – too young to have that role, but at this football club we give opportunities. The Chairman promotes from within and I want to repay his faith, and I know the staff all do. Collectively, it is a nice environment to work in.”
