Under-23s keeper who linked up with Ricky Sbragia's squad during the 2018/19 season.
The youngster entered the limelight when appearing against the Reds' Reserves for Newcastle United as a schoolboy in 2014, making his debut at that level. The rookie kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 triumph, making superb saves to deny Paddy McNair and Andreas Pereira. He also appeared in an Under-18s win for the Magpies against a Reds team that contained Marcus Rashford in 2015. Capped by England at Under-18 and Under-17 level, Woolston has had plenty of youth loan experience around the North East with the likes of Gateshead, Darlington, Blyth Spartans and South Shields. After a trial spell at United, he has been on the bench for Sbragia's side and started November's friendly win at Morton.
