Curtis Woodhouse (born 17 April 1980) is an English former professional footballer turned professional boxer and football manager. He is currently manager of Goole. Woodhouse played football as a central midfielder, and competed as a light-welterweight boxer. He is the former British light-welterweight champion. His career in the Football League spanned across nine seasons, earning four caps for the England under-21 football team. Woodhouse's professional boxing record stands at 29 fights 22 wins, 13 of which are by knock-out, and 7 defeats.

He started his footballing career with York City's centre of excellence before joining Sheffield United. In November 2001, he was transferred to Birmingham City for a fee of £1 million, before joining Rotherham United in January 2003, on loan for five months. He then joined Peterborough United on a free transfer in October 2003. In May 2005, he joined Hull City for £25,000, before joining Grimsby Town just eight months later in January 2006. He retired at the end of the 2006–07 season.

Woodhouse stated that he had "fallen out of love" with football and decided to turn to professional boxing, despite no previous experience. In September 2006, he won his first professional boxing match, defeating Dean Marcantonio, on points, knocking him down twice in the final round. His only defeat was by Jay Morris in April 2009, losing 37–36 on points.

He was convicted of assaulting a police officer and of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour in April 2006. As a result, he had his boxing license suspended for five months by the British Boxing Board of Control, despite the incident happening before he was under the BBBofC's jurisdiction. Woodhouse returned to football in November 2006, joining Rushden & Diamonds in the Conference National before moving to Mansfield Town in January 2009. After leaving them, he moved to Harrogate Town. At the end of February 2010, he joined Sheffield in the Northern Premier League. Before the start of the 2011–12 football season, he moved up two divisions in the football league system when he joined Conference North outfit Eastwood Town.

Career[edit]

York City and Sheffield United[edit]

Woodhouse began his football career at York City's centre of excellence in 1994,[2] before being transferred to Sheffield United for an initial compensation fee of £2,200.[3] Sheffield United and York City later agreed on an additional £15,000 fee plus a five-percentage sell-on clause.[3] He made his debut for Sheffield United at the age of 17, coming on as a 79th-minute substitute in a 1–0 home win against Crewe Alexandra in the First Division on 29 November 1997.[4][5] He made a total of nine First Division appearances in the 1997–98 season.[4] Woodhouse holds the record for being the club's youngest ever captain, aged 19.[6] He earned a call-up to the England under-21 team, and made his debut in a 2–2 away draw against Hungary on 27 April 1999.[7] He went on to earn another three caps against Sweden, Bulgaria and Poland in England's 2000 European Under-21 Championship qualifying group.[7] He made a total of 104 appearances in the Football League, scoing six goals,[4] before being sold to Birmingham City for £1 million in February 2001.[8]

Birmingham City[edit]

He made his debut for Birmingham City on 3 February 2001, in a 2–1 home victory against Norwich City.[9] He made 17 appearances for Birmingham during the 2000–01 season, scoring twice.[4] Both goals came in the final league match of the season, a 2–1 away win against Huddersfield Town, sealing their relegation fate.[10] Birmingham reached the League Cup final, however, Woodhouse was unable to play as he was cup-tied,[11] having previously played in three League Cup games for Sheffield United that season. He was arrested after the final of the League Cup, on 25 February 2001, having been charged with affray along with two others after they "trashed" an Indian restaurant and he wielded a chair in a brawl with university students.[12][13] In July 2002, he was sentenced to 120 hours of community service and ordered to pay £250 costs.[13] Birmingham finished fifth in the First Division, and reached the play-offs, losing in a penalty shootout in the semi-final, after the game was drawn 2–2 on aggregate. Woodhouse played in both semi-final matches.[14][15] The following season, 2001–02, he made 28 appearances in the First Division. Birmingham reached the play-offs again for the fourth consecutive season, this time gaining promotiton after beating Millwall in the semi-final and Norwich City in the final. This time, Woodhouse did not play in any of the play-off matches.[16][17][18] He made just three appearances for Birmingham City in the Premier League,[4] before being loaned out to Rotherham United in January 2003. Grimsby Town and Brighton & Hove Albion were also reportedly interested in signing the midfielder.[19] During his loan spell at Rotherham, he turned out 11 times in the First Division.[4]

Peterborough United[edit]

Woodhouse signed for Peterborough United on 14 October 2003,[20] the same day that he made his debut against Torquay United in a 3–2 victory in the Football League Trophy. However, he had been training with Peterborough a month prior to signing for them, whilst he "sorted out some problems at Birmingham City".[20] He went on to captain the side,[21] and was later described as "Captain Marvel" by manager, Barry Fry.[22] In 2003–04, he made 27 appearances in the Second Division,[4] scoring seven goals. Peterborough finished 18th in the Second Division, two points from relegation, with Woodhouse being named as Peterborough's player of the season.[23] In May 2004, Hull City manager, Peter Taylor, made a failed £100,000 bid to try and sign the midfielder.[24][25] The following season, 2004–05, he made 34 appearances in the newly named League One and scored four goals.[4] Peterborough suffered relegation, after finishing 23rd in the league.

Hull City[edit]

He joined Hull City in May 2005, the club he supported as a child,[26] on a two-year contract for a fee of £25,000, with the potential to rise to £150,000 depending on appearances.[27][28][29] His debut for Hull was as a late substitute in a 2–0 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion on 20 August 2005.[30] Though he lacked fitness at the start of the season, injuries to Keith Andrews and Ian Ashbee gave him the chance of a regular starting place, and manager Taylor also handed him the team captaincy.[31] Despite consistent performances, by December 2005 he had lost his place and there was speculation that he had fallen out with Taylor and wanted to leave; this was strongly denied by the player: "I'm shocked that people are saying I want to go. I'm very happy here. ... It's taken me long enough to get to Hull so I'm not going to walk out after a few months, or whatever."[32] In the following six weeks he made only two brief substitute appearances[30] – in five months with the club he played 18 games in the Championship without scoring[4] – and the strength of Hull's squad was such that he could not be guaranteed regular first-team football.[33]

Grimsby Town[edit]

In the January 2006 transfer window, he joined Grimsby Town on a two-year deal,[34][35] three years after they first expressed an interest in signing him.[36] He made his debut against former club Peterborough United in League Two, on 28 January 2006 in a 2–1 home defeat,[37] and scored his first and what turned out to be only goal for the club against Mansfield on 14 February 2006.[38] On 26 April 2006, Woodhouse said he planned to retire from football at the end of the 2005–06 season and embark on a career as a professional boxer.[39] He made 16 appearances in League Two, helping them to finish fourth place, reaching the play-offs. Woodhouse played in both of Grimsby's play-off semi-final victories over Lincoln City,[40][41] setting up the only goal of the game in the first leg.[40] He played his last Football League game in the play-off final at the Millennium Stadium on 28 May 2006. Grimsby were defeated 1–0 in the final by Cheltenham Town. Woodhouse gave away a penalty in the 70th minute that was saved by goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall.[42]

Switch to boxing[edit]

Woodhouse had a history of theft, robbery and affray, and said that he had "fallen out of love" with football.[43] He admitted to have been involved in around 100 street fights.[43] He said; "Boxing has always been my first love, even as a kid",[44] and "I love fighting...Rather than get locked up for it, I might as well get paid for it."[45] He also stated that he used to spar in the boxing gym after football training without his manager's knowledge,[44] saying "A few times at Sheffield United, Neil Warnock would drag me in and say ‘I hear you’ve been boxing’. I’d be standing there with a big black eye and a fat lip and deny it."[45] He trained under former British featherweight champion, Gary De Roux,[45] and made his boxing debut on 8 September 2006 at Grosvenor House Hotel, London, in a welterweight contest against Dean Marcantonio, despite not having any previous amateur experience.[46] The former footballer had lost two stone in weight since his playing days with Grimsby Town.[47] The fight was scheduled for four rounds of two minutes, Woodhouse knocked his opponent down twice in the final round and won on points.[47][48]

Return to football part-time[edit]

After only one professional fight, Woodhouse returned to football in November 2006, signing for Rushden & Diamonds, who were playing in the Conference National, the highest-tier of non-league football.[49] His boxing license was suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control, following a conviction for assaulting a police officer whilst drunk and of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour in April 2006, when he was still playing for Grimsby Town,[43][50] and not under the BBBofC's jurisdiction at the time of the incident. He was ordered to pay £100 compensation to PC Andrew Whitehead and £350 in costs. Woodhouse chose to play for Rushden & Diamonds to fulfil a promise he made to someone who was part of the consortium that took over the Irthlingborough based club.[43] He made his debut against Aldershot Town on 25 November 2006, in a 1–0 defeat.[50] He made five appearances in the Conference National for Rushden,[4] before deciding to leave to concentrate on his boxing career.[51]

He then returned to Rushden on 1 March 2007,[52][53] and made a further 11 appearances in the Conference in the 2006–07 season,[4] scoring three goals,[54] including a 30-yard long range effort against Northwich Victoria on 23 April.[55] After five months away from boxing, Woodhouse returned to the ring for his second fight on 15 April, defeating Duncan Cottier on points after four rounds.[48] On 1 May, he signed a new two-year deal with Rushden & Diamonds.[56] He then defeated Peter Dunn in a bout on 3 June, again on points, in a contest of four three-minute rounds.[48] In his fourth fight on 5 December 2007, he defeated Craig Tomes by way of knock-out after just 1 minute and 57 seconds, landing a left hook that unsettled Tomes as the referee decided his opponent as unfit to continue.[57] Matt Seawright was Woodhouse's next boxing opponent on 16 March 208, he defeated him after Seawright felt he was unable to continue after the third round.[48][58] Woodhouse finished the 2007–08 football season having played in 29 Conference National matches, scoring once and receiving two red cards.[4] On 17 May, Woodhouse achieved his sixth straight victory, maintaining his undefeated record against Dave Murray at Bramall Lane, defeating his opponent by knock-out in the second round. Murray managed to beat the standing eight count, but the referee deemed him unable to continue after 1 minute and 23 seconds.[59]

After defeating Wayne Downing in 57 seconds on 21 June 2008,[48] Woodhouse stated his intention to retire from football at the end of the 2008–09 season, to concentrate on his boxing career.[60] He was later appointed as team captain for his final season at the club.[61] Woodhouse scored a decisive penalty in Rushden's opening game of the 2008–09 season, away on 9 August, against newly promoted Eastbourne Borough.[62] He was sent off again in the home game against Histon on 25 August, after receiving two yellow cards.[63] In his eighth boxing match, Woodhouse defeated Jimmy Beech on points on 20 September.[48][64] He then proceeded to defeat Peter Dunn on 30 November, stopping him 23 seconds in the sixth and final round at Thurcroft's Consort Hotel, Rotherham.[48][65]

He signed for Mansfield Town on 5 January on a contract until the end of the 2008–09 season.[66] Woodhouse made his debut for Mansfield Town on 24 January in a Conference National match against Lewes.[67] Mansfield won 1–0.[67] Matt Scriven was Woodhouse's next opponent in the ring on 29 March at Bramall Lane. The fight went the distance of six rounds and Woodhouse was given the decision over Scriven.[68] His first professional loss as a boxer was on 25 April at Ulster Hall, in Belfast at the hands of Jay Morris.[48] The fight went the distance, but Woodhouse lost 37–36 on points over six rounds.[69][70] Mansfield manager David Holdsworth hoped Woodhouse would stay at the club,[71] but on 18 June, he joined Conference North team Harrogate Town.[72] On 27 November, he defeated Dean Hickman by TKO in round 6. This was Woodhouse's first fight in the light-welterweight division, having dropped down from welterweight.

On 13 January 2010, in an interview to the Grimsby Telegraph, Woodhouse commented he would definitely consider a move back to former club Grimsby Town after expressing his dismay at The Mariners languishing near the bottom of the League Two, within danger of being relegated from the Football League. He commented "If they are looking for a central midfielder, though, they are welcome to give me a call".[73] Harrogate released him by mutual consent on 25 February.[74] Three days later he avenged his defeat by Jay Morris by beating him with a TKO in round 3. This gave Woodhouse the first title of his boxing career, the International Masters light-welterweight title. On 25 April, Woodhouse defended the title with a 4th round knockout of Maurycy Gojko, who stepped in as a late replacement for Steve Saville. Next, on 2 July, Woodhouse knocked out veteran Stefy Bull in round 9. His next fight was due to be against 2006 Commonwealth Games gold medallist and former world amateur champion Frankie Gavin on 18 September, but Woodhouse pulled out days after the bout was announced in July. He moved up the non-League football ladder in June 2011, after signing for Conference North side Eastwood Town.[75]

Managerial career[edit]

It was announced on 2 May 2012, that Woodhouse was the new manager of Northern Premier League Division One South club Sheffield.[76] Woodhouse resigned in December 2012 after admitting having difficulty to managing a football team as well as being a professional boxer.[77]

On 14 October 2013, Woodhouse was announced as the assistant manager at Northern Premier League Division One South club Goole, with former team mate David Holdsworth being appointed manager. In January 2014 Woodhouse replaced Holdsworth as manager following Holdsworth's resignation.[78]

Personal life[edit]

Woodhouse was born in Beverley and raised in Driffield.[79] His father, Bernard Woodhouse, died at the age of 51 after he had a fatal stroke.[80] Unlike other boys who idolised footballers, Woodhouse stated his heroes were Nigel Benn and Mike Tyson.[46][81] He admits to fighting at school and in the streets after being racially abused: "I went from scrapping in the street and at school to fighting in the boxing ring from the age of 12. I was called a few names due to the colour of my skin, but with a quick smack in the mouth they soon backed off."[81] He used to visit Boothferry Park to support Hull City before pursuing his career in professional football.[79] He has a wife, Charlotte, and two children: a son named Kyle and a daughter, Isla.[80][82]
