MILLWALL have signed Bristol City winger Martyn Woolford on a two-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old infamously scored the winning goal against the Lions for Scunthorpe United in the 2009 League One play-off final at Wembley.

Manager Kenny Jackett confirmed earlier this week that he wanted to sign a left winger and he has moved quickly to bolster his squad after injuries to Liam Feeney and Chris Taylor.



NewsAtDen understands Millwall have paid a nominal, five-figure fee up front for the midfielder, although the final figure could rise based on appearances and add-ons.

Woolford told the club's official site: "I knew there might be some interest from Millwall just before that New Year's Day game, but it has all happened very quickly.

"I am absolutely delighted to be coming here at an exciting time for this club, and I'll be speaking to Liam Trotter and Josh Wright this afternoon to get the lowdown.



"Hopefully the fans will forgive me for that play-off goal, I'll be trying to make it up to them!"

Robins boss Dereck McInnes added: "The chance to secure a longer-term deal with Millwall is something that appealed to Martyn and his young family, and we wish him well for the future."

    Looking at the emails from Bristol City fans, they can't wait to get rid of him!! Also does this mean someone is on the way out?

      bertie - Thats an interesting comment because Chris Taylor is only on a 1 year contract which ends in the Summer.He hasn't yet been offered a new contract and is likely to be injured for the rest of the season.

    Very pleased with this. As mentioned above, Woolford has caused us plenty of problems in the past. (In fact, if you want to predict Jackett's transfer targets, this seems to be a common theme.) Don't think he should worry about the play-off final too much. In the long run, he did us a favour in allowing us to go up the following year with a stronger squad.

    Bertie: I'm not reading much into this. Taylor, Feeney and Malone are all injured at the moment (Taylor possibly for the rest of the season, it is said), and we need someone who can play on both flanks. I could be proved wrong, but I doubt that any of the first choice XI will be leaving just yet.

    Just looking at one of the Bristol Titty forums and their feeling's are mixed to say the least. Some are sad to see him go - really nice bloke etc. and some are over joyed that he's off their wage bill. I know KJ usually does the right thing but I ain't too sure about this one! He was totally off my radar and I never really noticed him when we played them this season. I guess only time will tell if he's good enough to wear a Millwall lion on his shirt.

    I see it as a good signing. Always played well against us and appears one of those players who never gives less than 100pct. Surprised they let him go, they were a much better team on Boxing Day when after he came on just before half time.

      I really hope you're right mate. Playing against us is a bit different from playing for us. I hope he does well, I really do. As the City fans are saying they just wish he could have played for them as he did for Scunny.

    How many times is that now that KJ pops up with someone who people never seem to get a mention on our forums.

    There will always be some fans talking negatively when a player chooses to leave, just check the posts about Wood. This guy is a good player and quite frankly he wants be be at Millwall. Lets give how a chance to shine. Also much as i rate KJ, surely Andy Ambler gets credit for closing the deal?

    By all accounts, Woolford didn't really fit in down in Bristol and it showed in his performances, lets hope KJ can work his magic with him but equally important is that he gets in another striker in this window.

    Not sure if its been asked, but did Woolford play with Andy Keogh or Josh Wright at Scunthorpe ?
