A lifelong Evertonian, Woan played for the Blues’ youth team as a youngster.

Despite being released at 18, Woan enjoyed a successful playing career which is best known for his time at Nottingham Forest, where he spent 10 years and made more than 200 appearances.

Whilst at Forest, Woan met teammate Sean Dyche, and the pair went on to reunite as coaches, working at both Watford and Burnley together.
