From an early age it was clear to others that Woody had a special talent with a football. His dream was to play as a professional footballer. Because of this he knew that if he wanted to succeed, his ball skills would have to be exceptional like his idol Diego Maradona.

 

At times when Woody was younger, he did not have the privilege of a football like most kids, so would look to use other things in order to practise his tricks. Guided by a video of Maradona he would use fruit such as oranges to better his ball skills.

 

As a teenager Woody played for professional clubs Wimbledon and Watford. Due to injury his dreams of succeeding as a professional footballer became more difficult.

 

By this time Woody had a library of tricks with a football which shaped him as a freestyler. In 2003 he entered the Nike Freestyle Competition in London's Earls Court where he was a semi finalist out of 32,000 tricksters. After this experience he realised that he had the ability to become a world class freestyler by using the tricks he had been practising for years. His profile grew bigger and bigger as he performed in a variety of promotions, exhibitions, advertising and television work. In these events he was able to work alongside well known names such as Sky TV, Nike, Coca-Cola, Orange, Barclaycard and many more. Because of his love for football, Woody created his own soccer school 'PBW Coaching' which has now become 'Woodys Football Freestyle Academy' - after completing his 3 years traineeship with Arsenal Football Club. His soccer school allows him to teach and show young kids ways of advancing their skills as footballers and tricksters, this is an opportunity he would have loved as a young boy.

 

Woody has built up a great reputation with all of his clients because of his positive attitude and approach to anything he does. He is a people person and can adapt to different situations easily. He is a fun person and enjoys his work, however at the same time he is very professional.

 

Although Woody is an exceptional freestyler, he realises to stay at the top of what he does he must continue to practise and perfect new, up-to-date and exciting tricks to set him apart from the rest.
