Career[edit]

Horwood started his career with the Sheffield United youth system in 2002.[2] He joined Stockport County on a one-month loan in March 2005, which was extended until the end of the 2004–05 season in April,[3] making 10 appearances in League One.[4] He joined Scunthorpe United of League One on loan in August 2005,[5] but made no appearances for the club as he only made the substitutes' bench for the opening game of the 2005–06 season against Brentford on 6 August.[6][7] He made his debut for Sheffield United on 25 October 2005, coming on as a substitute in a League Cup third round tie at Reading.[8]

He joined Conference National club York City on a one-month loan in November 2005,[9] making his debut in a 2–0 defeat against Morecambe on 26 November.[10] He was recalled by United in January,[11] making five appearances for York during this loan.[10] He joined League Two side Chester City on loan later that month,[12] making his debut in a 5–0 defeat against Carlisle United on 4 February 2006,[8] before returning to Sheffield United in February.[13]

He joined Darlington on a one-month loan in October 2006,[14] but returned to United due to an injury later that month.[15] He re-joined the club on loan in January 2007 and was sent off in a 1–1 draw with Bury following a lunge at Marc Pugh, which Darlington had a rejected appeal over, meaning he had to serve a three-match ban.[15][16][17] His loan at Darlington was later extended until the end of the 2006–07 season,[18] which he finished with 21 appearances.[19]

He joined Scottish Premier League side Gretna on loan until January 2008 in August,[20] making his debut in a 2–1 defeat against Kilmarnock on 15 September 2007.[21] He scored his first goal for Gretna in the reverse fixture, scoring their third goal in a 3–3 draw with a curling shot from a Kenny Deuchar cross.[21][22] He returned to United in January after making 17 appearances and scoring two goals for Gretna.[21][23] He joined League One side Carlisle United on a free transfer later that month, where he signed a two-and-a-half-year contract.[24] He was released by the club at the end of the 2009–10 season.

After training with Aberdeen, Horwood had a successful trial with League One club Hartlepool United, signing for them on 30 July 2010.[25][26] He made his debut in the club's opening game of the 2010–11 season, a 0–0 draw against Rochdale. Horwood was released by Hartlepool in May 2013.[27]

Horwood signed for League One Tranmere Rovers ahead of the 2013–14 season on 19 June 2013, joining on a two-year contract.[28] On 24 March 2014, Horwood joined League Two side Northampton Town on loan for the rest of the 2013–14 season.[29] He signed for Northampton permanently on a two-year contract on 2 July 2014, after being released by Tranmere.[30]
