Woolford has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Lions who have paid an undisclosed fee to their npower Championship rivals.

The Pontefract-born wide man joined City from Scunthorpe, after starting out with York City, and leaves having made 59 appearances, scoring four goals in the process.

He is well known to fans at The Den, although not for the right reasons, as it was his dramatic goal that secured Scunthorpe promotion to the Championship in 2009 at Wembley.

Woolford said: "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 absolutely delighted to coming here at an exciting time for this club, and I'll be speaking to Trotts (Liam Trotter) and Josh (Wright) this afternoon to get the low down.

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

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
