Yeovil Town have moved to bring in Martin Woods on an initial one month loan deal from fellow League One club Doncaster Rovers. The wide man has been unable to hold down a first team slot at high-flying Donny in recent weeks. A clause in the loan deal is that Woods will not be available for selection by the Glovers when Rovers visit Huish Park on Friday 21st March.
Woods is Scottish, but has played all his football in England. A left-sided midfielder, he began as a trainee at Leeds United but only ever made one substitute appearance for them, in 2004-04, before moving on to Sunderland. One season at the Stadium of Light brought two starts and six appearances off the bench before he moved again, this time to Rotherham United.
Woods was a regular with the Millers in 2006-07 as they headed for relegation, (37 starts, 2 substitute appearances) and scored four goals. But again after a single season he was off again, becoming Sean O'Driscoll's second signing of the summer at Keepmoat Stadium.
He has made 11 starts and 7 appearances from the bench for Doncaster during this campaign, but has only featured once since the turn of the year.
Billed as getting forward from midfield and having passing ability Glovers manager Russell Slade will be hoping Woods will give an option of more balance to the Yeovil midfield than has been evident for most of this season.
