Forward-thinking Martyn

16 July 2015

Martyn Woolford doesn't believe he has taken a step backwards in his career, despite swapping the Championship for League One, having joined the Blades earlier this week.


The Yorkshireman, who left Millwall in the summer, has relieved he turned down opportunities to remain in the second tier, in favour of a switch to Bramall Lane, but he is confident he has made the right move.


Woolford remarked: "I had offers to stay in that division (the Championship) but the size of this Club and what I want to achieve in the game meant this option immediately felt right.


"The goal for every footballer is to play in the Premier League and I've still got the ambition to do that."


The 29-year-old added: "This is a Club where I feel I can achieve my ambitions. It isn't a case of dropping down a level at all because of the set-up and the desire to do well here. It is quite the opposite in fact."


Yorkshireman Woolford joined the Blades earlier this week, become Nigel Adkins' first signing at Bramall Lane.
