Wood, Darren Sent some programmes to Darren Wood to be signed but recieved a message back sorry, I played for Chesterfield and Northampton and these Chelsea, Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday programmes are a different Darren Wood. Is there any chance you could give the right Darren Wood my email with a possibility of him signing these programmes for me. Iam 70 years of age and my life long hobby is getting my programme collection signed. They are all against Newcastle United. Thanking you Paul Whinham.
