Boreham Wood have signed goalkeeper Paul White, who recently departed league rivals Forest Green Rovers.

A former Republic of Ireland under-18 international, White was in his third season as a member of Forest Green`s goalkeeping set-up.

The young Irishman had been part of the squad since the summer of 2013 when he earned a contract following a successful trial spell under the management of former boss David Hockaday.

His one and only first-team appearance to date came at the end of his first season at the New Lawn, when he replaced Sam Russell as a second half substitute on the final day of the 2013/14 season against Wrexham.

He had originally been on trial with Brentford before moving to The New Lawn, and started his career in his homeland on the books initially at Tralee Dynamos, before moving to League of Ireland outfit Cork City.

Despite only being 18 years old, he made the brave decision to pursue a professional career in the game in England, and in his first season at Forest Green he gained regular senior experience while on loan at Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South & West outfit North Leigh.

Last season he enjoyed two good loan spells with Gloucester City in the National League North, helping the Tigers to retain their status in England’s sixth tier.

In October 2015, he joined Southern Premier side Frome Town on a one-month loan before leaving Forest Green.
