Woodbury had hoped to start January off with a win at Seaton Reserves but hopes where dashed on Saturday morning with news of yet another postponement.
The trip to Seaton was classed as having a good chance to go ahead due to the durability of the Colyford Road surface, but the optimism proved to be wrong.
Wooders where due to travel just one player short of a full squad, defender Michael Simpson missing due to work commitments.
Woodbury have been busy with mid-season recruitment. Midfielder Richie Ralph signed with a key reason behind his decision being the chance to play his football on the magnificent surface at Endurance Park. Woodbury boss Adam Reid said: “Richie seems to find space on the smallest of pitches, so one the size of Endurance Park is going to suit the lad down to the ground I have been a massive fan of his since he dictated the intermediate area cup final in February 2011. I believe he will prove to be an influence on the side.”
Reid has also added 33-year-old Russell Pengelly from Tiverton. Pengelly can play on either side of defence or in central midfield. He has played at a high level including Tiverton and spells at Willand and Elmore in the Western League.
Reid says: “He will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience.”
Woodbury have also put in a seven-days notice to Exmouth Town to speak with Dan Fulls. Manager Reid also makes no secret of the fact that he would love to sign the teenage striker.
Next up for Woodbury is Saturday’s Endurance Park derby with Exmouth Town. Reid says: “We can’t wait for this one.”
