Millwall: Remember Martyn Woolford? Here’s what he’s up to nowawdays

Martyn Woolford racked up nearly 100 appearances in a Millwall shirt during the Lions stay in the Championship back between 2012 and 2015.

The side weren’t battling up at the top as they are now, instead finding themselves in the lower reaches of the second tier.

However, Woolford was a mainstay in the side and was a battling midfielder for the club during his time there but, after three seasons with them, he decided to up sticks and move on to Sheffield United a league lower.

So how has his career gone on since he departed The Den?

Quiz: Have each of these 24 ex-Millwall academy players ever played in the Premier League?

1) Has Marvin Elliott ever played in the Premier League?

He spent a year with the Blades and featured fairly regularly, as the side managed to achieve a top-half finish in the third tier. After just one campaign though he decided it was time for another change and penned terms with Fleetwood Town.

He managed to get on the pitch a lot less – he made only three starts for the team – but was part of a side that bagged a play-off spot in League One.

That summer, he decided to seek another new club and this time it was the turn of Grimsby Town to snap him up. It’s with the Mariners where he began to feature a lot more heavily again, becoming a first-team regular during his two-year stint there.

He’s since gone on to bounce around several non-league sides and is still playing now too. He currently plies his trade for Frickley Athletic, having agreed a deal to join them over the summer. They play their football in the Northern Premier League (Division One East) and at 36 years of age, he still appears to be enjoying his football.

His career may be winding down then but his longing to play certainly isn’t. After his Frickley Town adventure, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he found somewhere else to carry with his playing career.
