Craig Alan Woodman (born 22 December 1982 in) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Exeter City.

Career[edit]

Bristol City[edit]

Woodman began his career with Bristol City as a trainee, turning professional in June 2000. His first team debut came on 5 December 2000 in the Football League Trophy defeat away to Plymouth Argyle. His league debut came on 24 February 2001, in a 4–0 defeat away to Colchester United.

He struggled to establish himself at City and in September 2004 joined Mansfield Town on loan.[2]

In December 2004 he joined Torquay United on loan making 22 appearances and scoring 1 goal.[3]

Woodman returned to Torquay on loan in November 2005.[4] Woodman made just four appearances before being recalled by Bristol City.[5]

Woodman was released from his contract at Bristol City on 9 May 2007. He signed with League Two side Wycombe Wanderers two weeks later.[6]

Wycombe Wanderers[edit]

Woodman was a key player during the team's promotion season in 2008/09, missing just ten minutes of league action all year. His good form was rewarded when he won the Supporters' Player of the Year and the Players' Player of the Year awards at the end of the season.[7]

Woodman was named the club captain in January 2010 following the release of Michael Duberry.[8] Woodman retained his captaincy until March when manager Gary Waddock replaced him with Adam Hinshelwood.[9]

Brentford[edit]

On 30 June 2010, Woodman moved to Brentford for an undisclosed fee.[10] Woodman made 79 appearances and scored 2 goals for The Bees during his two seasons at Griffin Park.

Exeter City[edit]

Woodman signed for League Two side Exeter City in July 2012 on a free transfer after his contract with Brentford was terminated by mutual consent.[11]
