Background: A former trainee with Bristol City who signed his first pro deal in the summer of 2000 and made his First Team debut on 5th December 2000 in City's 3-0 defeat away to Plymouth Argyle in the 'Football League Trophy'. He had to wait until 24th February 2001 to make his Football League debut - a 4-0 defeat at Colchester United in 'Division Two'. Went on to become a regular in the City side by the 2003/2004 season as they just missed out on promotion to 'Division One' after a Play-off Final defeat to Brighton at Cardiff. The following season after appearing in a 1-0 League Cup victory over Wycombe at Adams Park, Woodman was loaned out to Mansfield Town for two months and then onto a Torquay United for the remainder of that season. Under new City Manager Gary Johnson, he regained his spot in the City side and was virtually ever present for the 2005/2006 season. However, the following season, with City pushing for promotion, he lost his place and was released in June 2007.
On signing Woodman, Wycombe Manager Paul Lambert commented, "We have been on the look-out for a left-back for some time. He's a natural left-footer who'll give the team balance, and the bonus is he can also play further forward." Meanwhile, Woodman said, "City was my first club and being a west country lad it's a wrench to leave, but I needed a change. I was obviously interested in staying at a higher level, but Wycombe were the most positive club and that really impressed me. This is clearly a club that is going places and I want to be part of that. I've got some mates who play for Swindon and they told me that Wycombe were the best team in League Two which is just what I wanted to hear. I'm really excited about next season."
