Tiverton-born Craig Woodman is going into his sixth season at St James Park having made nearly 200 appearances for the club.
The popular left-back won rave reviews for his performances during the 2016/17 campaign as he established himself as the first-choice left-back with his assured displays. Manager Paul Tisdale even described him as the 'Franz Beckenbauer' of the team for his composure on the ball and tough tackling nature.
Craig has had a very successful career in lower league football making more than 500 competitive appearances over a 17-year period.
He began his career with Bristol City but made the switch to Wycombe Wanderers in 2007 before joining Brentford for an undisclosed fee ahead of the 2010/11 campaign.
He then moved to St James Park two years later and 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.
