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[6] as he only made the substitutes' bench for the opening game of the 2005–06 season against Brentford on 6 August.[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.[6]

He joined Conference National club York City on a one-month loan in November 2005,[8] making his debut in a 2–0 defeat against Morecambe on 26 November.[9] He was recalled by United in January,[10] making five appearances for York during this loan.[9] He joined League Two team Chester City on loan later that month,[11] making his debut in a 5–0 defeat against Carlisle United on 4 February 2006,[6] before returning to Sheffield United in February.[12]

He joined Darlington on a one-month loan in October 2006,[13] but returned to United due to an injury later that month.[14] 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.[14][15][16] His loan at Darlington was later extended until the end of the 2006–07 season,[17] which he finished with 21 appearances.[18]

On 31 August 2007, Horwood joined Scottish Premier League side Gretna on loan until January 2008,[19] making his debut in a 2–1 defeat against Kilmarnock on 15 September 2007.[20] 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.[20][21] He returned to United in January after making 17 appearances and scoring two goals for Gretna.[20][22] He joined League One side Carlisle United on a free transfer later that month, where he signed a two-and-a-half-year contract.[23] He was released by the club at the end of the 2009–10 season.[citation needed]

After training with Aberdeen, Horwood had a successful trial with League One club Hartlepool United, signing for them on 30 July 2010.[24][25] He made his debut in the club's opening mach of 2010–11, a 0–0 draw against Rochdale.[citation needed] Horwood was released by Hartlepool in May 2013.[26]

Horwood signed for League One club Tranmere Rovers ahead of the 2013–14 season on 19 June 2013, joining on a two-year contract.[27] On 24 March 2014, Horwood joined League Two side Northampton Town on loan for the rest of the 2013–14 season.[28] He signed for Northampton permanently on a two-year contract on 2 July 2014, after being released by Tranmere.[29]

On 1 February 2016, Horwood joined National League team Grimsby Town on loan until the end of the season.[30] Horwood was not included in the matchday squad as Grimsby beat Forest Green Rovers 3–1 in the 2016 National League play-off Final at Wembley Stadium, seeing Grimsby promoted into League Two after a six-year absence from the Football League.[31] He was not retained when his loan expired at the end of the season.[32]

On 6 July 2016, Horwood joined National League club Chester on a one-year contract.[33]
