Boreham Wood have signed Ebbsfleet United goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore on loan for the season.
Ashmore said: “I’m excited. I know the manager, he wanted me before in the past, I played here about ten years ago and pretty much it had none of this (the facilities).
“It’s come a long way and I’m very impressed I’m just really excited to get going now.”
Chairman Danny Hunter said: “Sometimes opportunity knocks and you have to go with it. Bromley’s keeper picked up a nasty injury last Saturday, Bromley then enquired about young Ryan Huddart and suddenly a deal is done between our clubs in no time. At the same time, Nathan was being circulated by Ebbsfleet, and I could see there was potential to get something done.
“I had quick chat with Luke Garrard and then my old friend in Garry Hill and the deal was done in less an hour between the clubs. In truth, I couldn’t be more pleased. If we can now get Nathan enjoying his football and if we can get him settled, then we know we have one hell of a keeper on our hands and a real platform to progress ourselves up the league.”
Manager Luke Garrard said: “I think he’s a top, top goalkeeper at this level. On his day, he’s one of the better goalkeepers and for us to be able to get this deal done is a credit to the Chairman and Charlie (Hunter, Chief Executive). He will bring professionalism and a presence, he’s a great acquisition to this football club.”
