Making over 20 appearances for the two clubs in 2021/22, Brunt will provide much-needed competition at the heart of Boreham Wood’s midfield.

✍️ Midfielder Zak Brunt has joined National League side Boreham Wood on a season-long loan, moving to Meadow Park with immediate effect.
An overwhelming back catalogue of games towards the end of the campaign was too much for Luke Garrard’s side to contend with.
The signing of Brunt will add quality to Boreham Wood’s midfield, as they embark on securing a maiden promotion to the Football League.
Boreham Wood’s 2022/23 campaign will begin away to Brunt’s former club, Southend United on Saturday, August 6.
