Experienced Rhead is no stranger to the National League, having won the title with both Mansfield Town and more recently Lincoln City, where he also went onto win the SkyBet League Two title last season and the EFL Cup at Wembley Stadium in 2018.

 

Rhead, who played 163 times for the Imps scoring 43 goals, left the club in the summer of 2019, as opportunities might have been scarce at Sincil Bank following their promotion to League One.

 

He was made a big offer to sign for the once big-spending Billericay Town and put pen-to-paper with the Essex club in July 2019.

 

However, after just 11 appearances, he was forced to leave the New Lodge when then club owner Glenn Tamplin resigned, withdrawing his investment and thus leaving Rhead as a free agent.

 

Wood manager Luke Garrard told https://www.borehamwoodfootballclub.co.uk: I flirted with Matt for five or six months since he left Billericay. I think if you was to put him in the bracket of a target man, I think hes one of, if not the best, at this level and above.

 

Garrard continued, You see him in the session today, hell bring a different aspect to our game, because we do like to play, we like to play through the thirds, but if teams full press us, we do have the opportunity to go back to front with Matt Rhead providing a focal point and real presence up top.

 

He comes here with a wealth of experience and hunger, which was evident for everyone to see during our session today. Hes a top, top guy, he wants to go about his business in the right way and weve got him on a short-term deal until the end of the season, which Im delighted about.

 

We both have an agenda of where we want to get to, so lets marry that up and hope he has a successful spell at Boreham Wood.
