Danny Woodards has today put pen to paper on a six month deal at Prenton Park after impressing in a two week trial spell.

The 30 year old becomes our seventh signing of the summer under new manager Rob Edwards and he has taken in games with us against Everton and Bolton Wanderers.

Having started his career at Chelsea, he moved Exeter where he got his professional debut back in 2005. He mioved to Crewe in 2007 and after a spell with MK Dons he has spent the last three years with Bristol Rovers who released him over the summer.

So far, he has made more than 300 appearances so brings with him good experience.

Speaking to the Official Site after the deal was concluded, the gaffer said of our new versatile defender.

‘Danny has really impressed me over the last fortnight. He’s come in, trained well and show how versatile he is in our friendlies, playing in the centre of midfield, left back and right back and he can also play centre back as well. He is a talented player who is very capable of playing in the league above and he’s fitted in really well here.’

The timing is also good with the knowledge that Liam Ridehalgh is out for up to six weeks as it provides good cover and more than gives himself the opportunity to earn an extended deal.
