UK-based Lee Ndlovu fires brace to lead Boreham Wood to victory at Kidderminster


England-based Zimbabwean striker Lee Ndlovu rediscovered his scoring touch after firing a brace to inspire Boreham Wood to a 2-1 victory away at Kidderminster in a Vanarama National League encounter at Aggborough Stadium on Saturday.

The victory ensured Ndlovu’s Boreham Wood fired themselves up to 14th place while Kidderminster remain just a point off the bottom of the Vanarama National League.

Ndlovu, who had gone through a difficult spell in recent weeks fired the visitors into the lead in the 27th minute after being set up by Tom Whelan and made it 2-0 shortly before the interval.

The 28-year-old center forward, who was born in Bulawayo before moving to England at a tender age, has now scored scored seven goals in 27 appearances for Boreham this season.

A prolific striker at Non-League level in England, Ndlovu joined Boreham in July last year from National League North side Brackley Town.

After beginning his career at Holbeach United and later spending time at Ilkeston Town, it was at Brackley where the gifted forward made a name for himself.

Ndlovu impressed at National League North level and established himself as one of the top strikers outside English football’s top five division.

However, with the Saints’ failing to reach the National League after multiple attempts at both automatic promotion and via the play-offs, he was bound to be hot property and departed the Northamptonshire side with nearly 300 appearances to his name.

Lee is a strong focal point up front who likes to hold the ball up and can add his name to the scoresheet in any situation.

He has previously expressed his desire to represent Zimbabwe in international football but is yet to earn a Warriors callup.
