Former York City defender Jamal Fyfield has signed for beaten National League play-off finalists Boreham Wood.

The 29-year-old arrives having made 83 appearances and scored three goals for Gateshead over the past couple of seasons. Wood were only denied a Football League place by ten-man Tranmere Rovers in May.

“I am over the moon to be honest,” Fyfield told Boreham Wood’s official website. “I have seen the progress that the club have made in recent years. It is a club who are going in the right direction, with a young manager and young management team, who are obviously getting the best out of their players and I am happy to be a part of it.”

Leyton-born Fyfield earlier completed 96 appearances and struck four goals for the Minstermen after signing from Maidenhead United in September 2010.

Those included a goal on his debut in a 3-1 victory at Tamworth, and also coming off the bench as York secured their first national knockout silverware when beating Newport County 2-0 in the FA Trophy final at Wembley in May 2012.

However, Fyfield wasn’t involved as City then overcame Luton Town 2-1 in the Conference Premier play-off final just eight days later – and went on to leave the club by mutual consent in January 2014.

He also enjoyed spells at Wrexham, Welling United and Grimsby Town during his career.
