Sam Woods




Date of birth






Lifelong Eagles fan Woods played a key role in helping his team claim the Professional Development League title in 2017/18, and was rewarded with a two-year contract extension in the summer of 2018 and his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup tie against Middlesbrough the following October.

A former Palace Under-16s captain, Woods broke into the Development team towards the end of the 2015/16 campaign, and after sharing his time between the Under-18s and the Under-23s throughout the following season, he made one of the centre-back spots his own in 17/18.

Woods now spends much of his time travelling with the first-team squad and earned his first start for them against Colchester United in August 2019.

Woods joined Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical in January 2020 on loan until the end of the 19/20 season.

In January 2021, he joined Plymouth Argyle on loan.
