We are delighted to confirm that Matt Wood has signed for the upcoming season with the Robins. The centre-back Matt was one of a clutch of players dual signed just before transfer deadline day last season from Shepton Mallet. After impressing in both of his appearances, firstly on his debut against Bath in the Somerset Premier Cup, Matt his first goal scored in the emphatic 5-1 win over Cinderford.
Matt Wood commented: "I am excited to be joining the squad ahead of the new campaign and I am very keen to get started. After playing in a couple of fixtures for Frome towards the end of last season, I have experienced first hand the club’s passionate supporters and I can see why the Robins have such a strong reputation. I would like to thank everyone at Shepton Mallet AFC for all their support during my time there and wish them all the very best for next season."
Danny Greaves stated: "I'm really happy to be bringing Matt Wood into the squad on a permanent basis following a few appearances last year on a dual registration basis. Matt is a player we had our eye on last season, and we were fortunate enough that Shepton were good enough to let us dual register him to help us in a couple of games when our injuries started to rack up. His performances in those games reinforced our opinion on him, and once his campaign finished with Shepton Mallet we moved quickly to try and get his signature. I would like to thank Aaron Seviour and all at Shepton Mallet for their professionalism throughout this process."
