Wood continues his goalscoring form

posted in: Juniors, Men, News

Former Cambridge FC player Chris Wood has continued his spectacular goalscoring form by scoring Burnley’s winner against Wood’s former club West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League.

Wood has now scored eight goals for Burnley, including four in his last three outings.

The All White striker scored the winner for Burnley in the 73rd minute to put the club into seventh place on the EPL table.

Wood has been in top form since recovering from a knee injury and is now a first team regular at Burnley following his $26.4 million transfer from Leeds United last August.

Wood played for Cambridge as a junior, joining the Cambridge Hawkes as an 11-year-old in 2002.

In 2006, he made his first team debut and featured in the U-19 squad at the national youth championships in Napier.

By 2010, Wood was an All White and a member of the Ricki Herbert-coached squad at the FIFA World Cup Finals in South Africa.

As a professional, he has had contracts with West Brom, Leicester, Leeds United and Burnley, as well as having spent time on loan to other English clubs.
