Glossop North End have completed the signing of former Curzon Ashton defender Simon Woodford.

The full-back had left the National League North club earlier this week, along with Andy Watson, after five-and-a-half years at the Tameside Stadium.

And he has now returned to Surrey Street on a permanent basis after making seven appearances for Chris Wilcock’s side earlier in the season before being recalled by Curzon.

In a statement on their website, Glossop North End said: “We are delighted to announce the return of Simon Woodford to Surrey Street. Welcome back Simon!”

Woodford arguably netted the most important goal in Curzon’s history after scoring the goal which earned them promotion to the sixth tier of English football for the first time in 2015 – the winner in their 1-0 victory over Ilkeston in the Evo-Stik Premier Division Play-Off Final.

He could make his second debut for Glossop on Saturday at home to Tadcaster Albion, if the game passes a morning inspection.

The Hillmen – whose last three games have been postponed because of waterlogged pitches – are currently fourth in the Evo-Stik First Division North, a point behind third-placed Ossett Town with two games in hand.
