Arsenal to lend coach to Boreham Wood

Published Add your comment

To celebrate Saturday's Non-League Day, Arsenal will lend their luxurious team coach to Boreham Wood FC, reports the Daily Mirror.

Away from the £42.5m transfers, football's lifeblood still lies in the grassroots of non-league sides and Arsenal have decided that lending them their team coach will be a good way to show that their presence isn't going unnoticed.

Arsenal will organise all of the necessary travel arrangements for the Conference South side's game against Weston Super-Mare this weekend before giving them the chance to travel the 148 mile journey in style by lending them the team bus.

The gesture will be in recognition of the links the local club shares with the Gunners. Boreham Wood hosts home games for the highly successful Arsenal ladies whilst Boreham Wood's manager is former Arsenal winger Ian Allinson. 

Arsenal club secretary told the national newspaper: "We have enjoyed a very strong relationship with Boreham Wood FC over the years and are delighted to have the opportunity to help the team with their travel on Non-League Day again this year. We wish Ian Allinson and his players all the best for the match.”

Arsene Wenger's men are free from match duties this weekend due to the international qualifiers so see lending the team bus, which would be standing idly by otherwise, as the perfect way to promote Non-League Day.

If your team aren't playing this weekend then you can celebrate too by going to support your local non-league side.
