NEW CONTRACT: Josh signs a new one-year deal

Striker Josh Woods signs a new one-year contract with the Reds

4 August 2023

Accrington Stanley striker Josh Woods has today signed a new one-year contract with the club.

Woods, who joined the Reds from Clay Brow in July 2021, then made his first team debut five months later as a second half substitute in a 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers. 

The 23-year-old played a total of 15 games last season and scored his maiden EFL goal in the club's 4-4 draw against Burton Albion; as well as grabbing four goals in as many appearances for the Under-23s.

Woods' new contract will keep him at the Wham Stadium until the summer of 2024.

John Coleman said: "Josh lights up the place every day in training. He is a very good footballer whose career was hampered by an injury last season, which set him back massively after he had scored his first league goal.

"He has worked extremely hard to get back fit, his attitude around the dressing room is brilliant and his work rate is second to none, he is top in all of the running statistics.

"Hopefully he can really start his career now."

Josh added: "I am excited to get started again. It was tough last season because of my injuries, but I am feeling good, I am fully fit and I am back to prove a point."

A full interview video with Josh will be uploaded to the club's official YouTube channel later this month, CLICK HERE to find out more!

The extension is subject to EFL and FA ratification.
