Woodhouse succeeded Liam King at the NPL Premier Division Gainsborough in October 2019 after a brief but successful spell in charge of NPL North West Division side Taddy.
As a player, he earned four caps as an England U21s player. His professional boxing record stands at 29 fights 22 wins, 13 by knock-out, and 7 defeats.
The Trinity boss kicked off his career with York City’s centre of excellence before joining Sheffield United and transferring to Birmingham City for a fee of £1 million in 2001.
Before moving into management, his other clubs included Rushden & Diamonds, Mansfield and Town and Peterborough United.
Woodhouse – who also enjoyed a coaching stint at Lincoln City during David Holdsworth’s time as manager at Sincil Bank – takes his side to Mickleover Sports in the NPL’s top flight on Saturday.
