Wood broke into the Leeds team shortly after signing from Crook Town in November 1920. Although he played fifty-six times for United he only scored twice and those came in consecutive games. The first, in a 3-1 away win at Blackpool on 17th September 1921, and the second, in a 2-0 home victory over Clapton Orient the following Saturday. He held down a regular place with Leeds for almost two seasons before being transferred to fellow Second Division side Sheffield Wednesday in June 1922. Surprisingly, he failed to make a League appearance for the Owls. He died in Harrogate on 8th June 1979.
