Who's this Chris Woods bloke?

15 April 2009

Albion fans logging onto the official web site to find out more about our young Kiwi striker are being surprised to learn that he's actually a 49 year old English goalkeeper who retired ten years ago. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks, eh?

Thanks to Aidan for pointing out Woods is 49, not 39! Maths was never our strong point...

Albion have now updated the squad page to point to the right person, striker Chris Wood. Apparently the details are entered direct from the PA news feeds and often have to be corrected.
