97 Micky Woods

Position : Forward

Played : 1986-7

Appearances : 6

Goals : 3

Micky was a non-contract signing from Guiseley at the start of the 1986-7 season, on a sort of stand-by basis while he continued to work as a van driver.

He didn’t make his League debut until November with a late substitute appearance away, at Swansea then he started in the Freight Rover game away at Darlington which proved to be Vic Halom’s last game in charge. He was in the side when Eddie Gray took over and started scoring goals. A big balding bloke he looked a bit clumsy at times but was a big threat in the air and a much better option than Alan Young. Unfortunately Gray couldn’t see past the fact that Micky wasn’t available for training sessions and let him go as soon as Young recovered from a knock to the consternation of the fans.

Micky signed for Colne Dynamos and scored regularly in the early part of their rise through the pyramid.
