Woodfield, David I was in the same class as David in Shrubland Street School, Leamington Spa in 1954/55. He may possibly remember my unusual Christian name, Deleford. My husband played for Birmingham City at the same time David played for Wolves.

Woodfield, David I used to train and play with Dave in the late 1950's at Castlecroft, Cannock Chase and of course Molineux. We had a good youth team in those days and Dave will remember our two pals Dave Oliphant (now sadly passed away) and Alan Hinton

Woodfield, David Just to let you know i coach with him at Cambridges City's development squads.

David Woodfield He used to be my coach when I started playing football here in Malaysia and he taught me how to play. I was a little kid and i used to train with his son, Jason woodfield. Just seeing this brings back loads of memories man i miss this guy haha

Woodfield, David David, I think my memory is starting to play tricks on me. I seem to recall you getting injured on your debut for Watford. Did you play 1st team football after that?

Woodfield, David I can't understand why I have never been picked to play for England... At the age of 12 in 1955, I scored a hat trick against David Woodfield who played center half for Campion School and I played center forward for St. Peters School, Leamington Spa.
