George William Wood (18 November 1862 – 4 December 1948) was an English first-class cricketer, who played two matches for Yorkshire County Cricket Club in 1895.[1]

Born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, Wood was a specialist wicket-keeper, who made his debut in a rain ruined against Sussex at Fartown, Huddersfield, where his batting was not called upon, and Yorkshire did not take the field. Batting at number eleven, he scored two runs and a duck and completed a stumping[1] against Somerset at Headingley, a low scoring match won by the home team by 103 runs.

Wood died in Huddersfield, in December 1948, aged 86.[1]
