Justin Shaibu joins Boreham Wood on season-long loan

Striker returns to Meadow Park for 19/20 campaign

29 July 2019

Justin Shaibu has re-joined Boreham Wood on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old agreed the swap today, Monday 29 July, after completing a medical that sees him return to Meadow Park for the entire 2019/20 campaign.

Justin spent 10 months with The Wood last season, scoring 13 times in 46 games as the squad fought to an 18th place finish in the Vanarama National League. He also scored a hat-trick in the First Round of the FA Trophy, during what turned out to be a 3-1 win over Torquay United after Extra Time.

Prior to that, he had also spent six months on loan with Walsall in Sky Bet League One for the second half of the 2017/18 season, playing 14 times.

Justin joined Brentford B in July 2016, earning his promotion to the First Team a year later. He made his senior Brentford debut against Cheltenham Town in the Carabao Cup on 7 August 2016 and has so far managed six league appearances in red and white stripes.

Head Coach Thomas Frank said of the departure: "Justin enjoyed a great loan spell with Boreham Wood last season. He was able to adapt to the league quickly and developed as a player and an individual. We are pleased he is getting an opportunity to re-join them and continue where he left off last season."
