BOREHAM WOOD boss Luke Garrard believes the addition of young striker Harry White has given him a strikeforce capable of keeping his side in the National League.
White, 21, joins Wood on loan from League One side Barnsley for the rest of the season having previously spent time on loan with Kidderminster Harriers this term, scoring three times in five appearances.
He joined Barnsley from National League North side Gloucester City in September and is now back in Non-League again with Boreham Wood.
Garrard’s side have been lacking an end product and are currently on a three game run without a goal. They’ve scored just eight times in their last 17 league matches.
Wood are still sitting one point and one place above the relegation places and rookie boss Garrard reckons White’s arrival could spark an attacking revival.
The manager told the club’s website: “Harry really impressed me with his work ethic, strength and commitment when he played against us last month. When the chairman told me there was a possibility that he could get him I was absolutely delighted.
“We all know we need goals. Our defence is not a problem and with the strikeforce I now have fit and at my disposal, I’m hoping that they will get the goals that will fire us to survival.”
Chairman Danny Hunter added: “I would like to thank the Barnsley chief executive Ben Mansford for all his help in getting this deal done and with the minimum of fuss.
“I’m mindful not to put too much pressure on young Harry but he just might be the link we’ve been missing and his signature now gives Luke a very strong 21 man squad going into the run in.”
