✍️ Gary Woods joins the Grecians!

Welcome to our newest recruit

1 February 2023

We are delighted to welcome experienced goalkeeper Gary Woods to the club on a contract until the end of the season.

The Kettering born 32-year-old, who most recently played for Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership, becomes Gary Caldwell's sixth signing of the January transfer window, which closed at 11pm last night. 

Woods youth career began at Cambridge before joining Manchester United after a number of trials at Premier League clubs, before his first senior move to Doncaster Rovers in 2009. He played 49 matches in the 2012/13 season as Doncaster lifted the League One title. 

Moves to Watford, Leyton Orient and Ross County (loan) followed before he made the permanent switch north of the border to sign for Hamilton Academical. For the Accies, Woods appeared just under 100 times in three Scottish Premiership seasons.

He has also played for Oldham Athletic and Aberdeen before his switch to Kilmarnock last summer.

Manager Gary Caldwell said: "There were a few reasons why we brought Gary in. I felt like we needed a permanent number two to come in and cover should get injured or suspended, but more importantly it allows Harry Lee to go out on loan and develop his game within playing games."

Good luck, Gary!
