Anthony Wordsworth: A Football Background

22 August 2014

Latest on the Millers new signing...

Born in Camden, Anthony’s big break came at Colchester United when he rose through the youth ranks before making his senior debut in a League Cup tie against Shrewsbury in 2007.
 
He would make more appearances during the 2007/8 season when Colchester were still a Championship side before they were eventually relegated to League One.
 
Colchester’s relegation opened the door for Anthony and he was a regular the following season netting three times in 36 games in all competitions.
 
Anthony was now a firm fixture in the U’s starting 11 as he carved out a reputation as a goalscoring midfielder with 11 goals during the 2009/10 season. He would bag 13 goals in the 2011/12 campaign before landing a move back to The Championship in January 2013 when Ipswich paid a reported £100,000 for his services.
 
He ended the campaign in Tractor Boys’ starting line-up netting his first goal in a 2-1 defeat to Hull City.
 
Last season he was restricted to just eight appearances with the 25-year-old looking to recreate his form from his Colchester days on loan at New York Stadium.
