Boreham Wood Excited To Sign Ex-Flying Eagles Striker Uchechi


National League side Boreham Wood's manager Luke Garrard has praised ex-Nigeria junior international forward Daniel Uchechi who has joined the fifth-tier club following a successful trial.


The 26-year-old, who has spent the last four years playing in Sweden, has agreed a one-year deal at Meadow Park.

Uchechi received his first international call-up in the 2008 Intercontinental Cup in Malaysia. He was called up for an African Youth Championship qualifier in Senegal with the Flying Eagles, and for both legs against Sudan, but had to pull out with injury. 

He played three games by the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup for the Nigeria national under-20 football team and scored the opening goal during the FIFA U-20 World Cup Round of Sixteen match between Germany and Nigeria at the Mubarak Stadium on October 7, 2009 in Suez, Egypt. 

Danny was also in the Nigerian U-23 team that failed to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics under Augustine Eguavoen.

Uchechi had spells with Charlton and West Ham as a youngster and has also had stints at Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday and Aberdeen.

"Daniel brings versatility and strength to an ever improving squad," Wood boss Luke Garrard told the club's website.

Boreham Wood FC are also looking to sign Yakubu Aiyegbeni after the former Super Eagles, Everton and Middlesbrough striker played a pre-season friendly with the club.
