The defender Calum Woods has signed for Tranmere Rovers after leaving Bradford City, who he only joined in January.
The defender has previously won promotion and league titles with multiple teams, such as Dunfermline in Scotland and Huddesfield in the Championship. The new signing may help Tranmere to consolidate their position in League One after back to back promotions. The defender is 32 years old so is not short of experience and could greatly help to mature the younger players and make them better.
The 32-year-old spent about six months with Bradford, which isn’t long at all. Maybe due to a lack of game time the defender decided to move so that he can play more games. During his time with Bradford he only played one game, however when he played for Preston North End he played a total of 67 games over five seasons.
Overall, the defender is an extremely experienced player and good player to help out the younger ones. The defender has played a total of 313 games over his career, with Dunfermline, Huddersfield, Preston and Bradford. Over these games the defender has scored 12 goals.
The addition of Woods to the Bradford squad is a good one, this is for many reasons. Mainly due to the experience that the defender holds and can pass on to others. When asked about joining Tranmere Rovers, Woods said,”I know i’m coming into a team with back-to-back promotions so hopefully we can push on.”
Its clear that Woods wants to make it three in a row for Tranmere Rovers.
