The son of Newcastle's goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman is one of the most highly-rated young shot-stoppers in the country, having represented England at under-16 and under-17 level.

As well as becoming the regular number one at under-18 level in 2012/13, Woodman also appeared on the bench at under-21 level on a handful of occasions. He awaits his competitive second-string bow but played for the Reserves in a friendly at York while still just 14 years old.

Went under the surgeon's knife in September 2013 and is set to be sidelined until early in 2014.
