Tiverton-born Craig Woodman has had a very successful career in lower league football making more than 500 competitive appearances over a 16-year period. 

He began his career with Bristol City, but made the switch to Wycombe Wanderers in 2007. He became a popular figure at Adams Park, and quickly established himself in the left-back role. At the end of the 2008/09 season, he won supporters’ player of the year and players’ player of the year awards as they Chairboys were promoted to League One along with Exeter City. 

Woodman joined Brentford for an undisclosed fee ahead of the 2010/11 campaign and then moved to St James Park two years later. 

He played 46 times in his first season in City colours as the Grecians came close to winning promotion from League Two. His first goal came when he netted a spectacular indirect free-kick on the final home fixture in 2013/14 campaign, helping to secure City’s survival as they defeated Scunthorpe United 2-0.
