Will Wood BiographyLast updated 26 Sep 2016
An attack-minded full-back, Wood aspires to be like Saints Academy graduate, Gareth Bale. Hailing from nearby Sussex, Will had trials with Fulham and Chelsea before he joined the Saints Academy aged 12 having attended a trial event which led to a six-week stint at the Club and then a contract offer.
Will has been elevated on a few occasions to Saints Under-21s in 2014/15, making a string of solid performances as a left-sided centre-back. In total, he made 18 appearances for the Under-21s in 2014/15 as well as five for the Under-18s.
Wood's 2015/16 campaign was hampered by injury, as the defender made nine appearances over the course of the season.
