Following their heartbreak in the National League promotion final, Boreham Wood have began preparations for next season by signing defender Manny Parry from Dover Athletic.
Parry, who was named in the Non-League Paper’s Team of the Year, was an ever present in Dover’s back line last season after joining from Braintree last summer.
The 24-year-old has previously represented the likes of Millwall and Stoke City.
In a statement on the club’s official website, Boreham Wood manager Luke Garrard said, ““I have spoken with Manny at length, and for me, he ticks a lot of my boxes – he is powerful, athletic, very, very strong and he scores goals from defence.
“He plays in a position I want him to make his own this year and he is comfortable with coming into our shape. I think that he could be a really, really big signing. He is coming into a settled group of players who are progressive, and he wants to be a part of that.
“He was named in the Non-League Paper’s ‘Team of the Year’ this season and that is a massive achievement. It shows how highly he is regarded at this level and I think that he has great quality.
“Just talking to him, I can see that there is a focus to him and a belief as to where he sees his future and hopefully we can all progress together.”
Parry becomes the second player to leave Dover today, following the earlier departure of top goalscorer Ryan Bird to Maidstone United.
