Calum Jack Woods (born 5 February 1987) is an English professional footballer who plays for Championship club Preston North End. He is a versatile player who can play primarily in full back and centre back positions but also in midfield positions.[2]

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Woods joined Liverpool youth academy at the age of 10 but failed to break into the first team and was given a free transfer in May 2006.

Dunfermline Athletic[edit]

He signed for Dunfermline Athletic after a trial spell alongside fellow former Liverpool player Robbie Foy[3] and played 13 games for the club in his first season. In March 2008, manager Jim McIntyre confirmed that Woods had signed a two-year contract extension.[4][5] He scored his first goal for Dunfermline on 4 November 2008 when he scored the opener at Airdrie United.

2010–11 season[edit]

Woods enjoyed a successful 2010–11 season with Dunfermline, scoring four goals in thirty seven appearances, in the process helping the Pars achieve promotion to the Scottish Premier League as Champions of Scottish Division One. Woods became the centre of controversy after he was fielded as a substitute when suspended during Dunfermline's 7–1 Scottish Cup fourth round victory over Stenhousemuir.[6]

Huddersfield Town[edit]

On 8 June 2011, he joined Football League One side Huddersfield Town on a free transfer, signing a two-year contract that will see him stay at the club until the summer of 2013.[7] He made his debut in the 1–1 draw with Bury at the Galpharm Stadium on 6 August 2011.[8] Woods would switch from his usual position of right back to playing on the left due to the form of right back Jack Hunt and an injury to regular left back Gary Naysmith in the second half of the season, Woods would go on to make 26 league appearances in his first season with Huddersfield with a total of 31 in all competitions as Huddersfield finished the season as Play-off champions winning promotion to the Championship after beating Sheffield United on penalties in the Wembley final.[9][10] His first goal for the club came 2 and a half years after he joined the club, in a 2–1 defeat at A.F.C. Bournemouth at Goldsands on 28 January 2014.

At the end of the 2013–14 season, Woods was not offered a new deal at the club and was subsequently released.

Preston North End[edit]

On 9 June 2014, he joined Football League One side Preston North End after being released by Huddersfield Town.[11]
