Josh Rees


The Hertfordshire-born midfielder started his playing career in Arsenal’s academy before leaving North London for Nottingham Forest’s youth set-up in 2013.


Rees progressed and made his debut for Forest against Brighton & Hove Albion, however he left soon after to join Chelmsford City.


He then enjoyed spells with Bromley FC, Gillingham FC and Aldershot Town before putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with Boreham Wood in the summer.


The 28-year-old midfielder is a goal-threat and the Club’s joint-top goalscorer this season with Scott Boden, having both scored four.
