Playing career[edit]

After making his senior level debut in the 1980–81 season for the Murrayfield Racers, who he helped to win the Northern League, Wood joined the Dundee Rockets for the 1981–82 season. He played for Dundee for the next six season, helping them to win the Northern League and the Scottish National League in 1981–82, the Autumn Cup in 1983, the British Hockey League in 1982–83 and 1983–84 and the playoffs in 1982, 1983 and 1984.

Wood joined the Fife Flyers for the 1987–88 and 1988–89 seasons before he joined the Tayside Tigers for the end of the 1988–89 season. He then joined the Solihull Barons for the start of the 1989–90 season, which he finished with the Ayr Bruins before returning to Solihull for the 1990–91 season.

After Solihull folded in 1991, he helped form the Sheffield Steelers with David Gardner-Brown and played for them for the next two seasons, helping them gain promotion from English League Division 1 to the British League Division 1 and then the Premier Division. In 1998 Wood moved to South Africa where he coaches at club, Provincial and National Team level.
