Richard Woodrow

Richard Woodrow
Norwich Career: 2000-2003 (Academy)
Current Club: Gorleston (Ridgeons League)
Date of Birth: 16/12/1983 
Nationality: English


Richard Woodrow is a right-winger from Lowestoft who has also played in central midfield. Richard was a Third Year Academy Scholar at Carrow Road but the club announced in January 2003 that he would not be offered a further contract at the end of the 2002/03 season.

In the meantime, he has signed for Norfolk's second side Kings Lynn after their management team were impressed by his performance for Norwich's reserves against Portsmouth. In June 2003, Richard signed a one year contract with the Linnets. The Linnets went on to win the Dr Martens Eastern Division with a 2-0 victory at Fisher Athletic on 1st May 2004. Only a fringe player at Kings Lynn, Richard switched to Lowestoft in June 2004.

Lowestoft won the Ridgeons League trophy on 29th April 2006 with a 2-0 win over Needham Market with Woodrow scoring both goals in the second half. Fellow ex-canaries Greg Crane and Craig Lewis were also in the squad

Woodrow scored twice in Lowestoft's FA Vase semi-final first leg against Whitley Bay which the Suffolk side won 4-0. Although they lost 3-0 in the second leg, the 4-2 aggregate win means that Lowestoft will play at Wembley in the FA vse final on 11th May 2008. Unfortunately for Lowestoft, they lost 2-1 in the final to Kirkham & Wesham

At the beginning of September 2011, Richard signed for Gorleston. Greens' manager Richard Daniels said "People say that we’re splashing out a lot of money but I can assure people that we’re not. I think players can just see that we’re a club trying to move forward. I think Richard will be a real asset to us as well. It’s not on loan either – he’s with us permanently.”
