Woolford hits winner in Wembley victory

FORMER Glasshoughton Welfare player Martyn Woolford was man of the match in Scunthorpe United's 3-2 win over Millwall in Sunday's League One play-off final at Wembley.

With the score 2-2, the 23-year-old left-winger scored a dramatic 85th minute winner.

Woolford also set up Scunthorpe's other two goals. both scored by Matt Sparrow.

Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins paid tribute to Woolford.

"We brought him in from York on a free in the summer. We saw the potential in him and he's a flair player.

"He's bided his time, kept going, kept learning, worked hard and done very well for us."

Featherstone lad Woolford spent three years at Glasshoughton Welfare before joining Frickley Athletic. He then had a spell at York City before Scunthorpe signed him last August.

He is the son of former Featherstone Rovers player Neil Woolford and the grandson of the club's former record try-scoring winger Cyril Woolford.

Martyn's uncle is Paul Hughes, another former Featherstone Rovers player.
