Biographical Text

Frank Wood played eight times for Exeter City in the early 1950s in between playing for Bury and Rochdale. 

He played for Manchester junior side Hulme until he was signed as a professional by Bury in October 1948 where he appeared in just one league game even though he remained on the books until the end of the 1951-52 season. 

He was contacted by Exeter City player-manager Norman Kirkman in January 1953, despite being without a club since he had left Bury, and invited for an initial one month trial with the Grecians. Wood was given a contract until the end of the season and made his debut in a 1-0 win at Ipswich Town in March 1953. 
His contract was not renewed at the end of the season and he signed for Rochdale for the 1953/54 season.
