Reds: Bradley Wood signs for Alfreton Town

Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law has made former Grimsby Town right back Bradley Wood his first new signing of the summer.

The Reds boss has signed 21-year-old Wood on a one-year contract following his release by the Mariners on May 2.

Leicester-born Wood made a total of 113 appearances over a four year contract with Grimsby, scoring one goal. At the time of his release was the longest serving current player at the club.

Described as a ‘combative and tough tackling defender’, the versatile Wood has also played on the right flank and left back and was Grimsby Town’s young player of the year in the 2010/2011 season.

Wood said: “I will give 100 per cent for any team I play for - that’s the type of character I am. That’s half the battle of becoming a decent professional, and it’s something I’ll always have.”
