Skipper Commits to Wood

Boreham Wood have announced that club captain Joe Devera has penned a twelve-month extension to his current contract.

Devera began his career at neighbours Barnet and came up through their youth system before breaking into their first-team in 2006/07 season.

 

He soon established himself at right back and went on to make 177 appearances over a six-year period for the Bees.

 

In 2011 Devera became Paolo Di Canioís first signing as Swindon Town manager.

 

He was a part of the Swindon side that won promotion to League One. The following season the Robins made the League One play-offs only to lose out to Brentford on penalties. This was, however, Devera`s last game for Swindon after making sixty-six appearances.

 

After his release from the Robins he signed a two-year deal with Portsmouth, where he was used as both a centre-back and right-back.

 

After seventy-two appearances his contract was not renewed and he left Fratton Park in the summer of 2015.

 

Devera joined Wood soon after and was part of a defensive back line that ensured they kept our National League status last season.

 

This season he has been an instrumental part of what is presently, the third best defensive unit in the division, just behind two of the bigger sides who are chasing promotion.

 

On getting Devera signed for a further twelve months, Wood boss Luke Garrard said: ďItís important to get your big players sorted early, and Joe is of course also my club captain. Heís someone I know I can rely on, heís experienced, has a big voice within the group and has become an influential member of my dressing room.

 

ďBy getting him signed, Iíve now added another member of a fantastic defensive unit, to our squad for next season. Iím now more than comfortable, that Iíll get another one or two of the lads sorted out in the coming weeks, as we look to establish ourselves in this division again next seasonĒ.
