Harry Wood is a Red

Shelbourne Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Harry Wood from Hull City on loan for the remainder of the 2023 season, subject to international clearance. 

A central midfielder, the 20-year-old was born in Leeds and began his football career at Manchester United’s academy.

Wood joined Hull’s academy as an Under-16, making his senior debut in their final game of the 2020/21 season against Charlton Athletic, lifting the League One title.

He made his home debut for the club in the EFL Cup against Wigan in August 2021 before then joining League Two side Scunthorpe United on loan.

Wood made 13 appearances and registered four assists, before returning to the Tigers in January 2022.

Wood was then a mainstay in the Hull Under-21s last season, with notable performances being a hat-trick against Charlton and netting in the national Professional Development League semi-final against Millwall.

As well as making his EFL Championship debut in Hull City’s  final game of the season against Luton Town.

Damien Duff, Shelbourne FC Head Coach said: “We are very happy to have Harry Wood in the building. He has a high level of technical ability and he will no doubt improve our squad. We were impressed with everything we heard and saw of Harry and were even more so after training yesterday. He is very honest and hard working and will fit nicely into our culture.”

Harry Wood said: “I’m delighted to join Shelbourne FC on loan, I can’t wait to get playing. As soon as I heard I had the chance to come here, I jumped at it. I am looking forward to it, working and learning from Damien Duff and his staff, it’s an unbelievable opportunity to learn new things and improve my game especially under the management. Damien and Joey have played at the highest level of football and to work day in and day out under them and the staff is an unbelievable opportunity, the League of Ireland is a competitive league and Shels are a great club with brilliant supporters so I’m looking forward to putting the Red shirt on and doing the best I can. I want to try to help the club get European football, which would be a massive achievement.”
