Accrington Stanley have made their first signing for the League One season in left back Will Wood.

Wood, 21, has signed a one-year deal with the Reds after being released by Premier League Southampton.

Wood has been with the Saints since he was 11, signing his first professional contract at St Mary’s.

“Will is a defender who came to train with us in February and impressed us,” said manager John Coleman.

“He has come through a prestigious academy at Southampton and fits our criteria of a young, hungry player. We are delighted to sign him.”
