Born in Worksop, Wood came up through the Mansfield Town youth team where he was captain, before making his first-team debut aged 17 in an FA Cup tie against Colchester United in November 2004. He made his league debut in May 2005, when he came on as a substitute against Rochdale. In late March 2007, Wood was loaned to Ilkeston Town of the Northern Premier League to get first-team experience but was recalled in April to cover for injuries. After Mansfield Town were relegated to the Football Conference at the end of the 2007–08 season, he was out of contract but was offered new terms by the club.
On 1 July 2009, Wood headed south and signed for Boston United. After being a regular in defence, he was released in May 2010 when the club achieved promotion to the Conference North. He made 47 appearances for the Pilgrims but failed to score a goal.
In the summer of 2010, he joined his home town club Worksop Town on a free transfer. He made his debut in the away win at Nantwich Town and has been a key member of the first team ever since, regularly playing in the left back position.
