Originally from Camberwell, Woodford played for Hawthorn in their inaugural VFL season in 1925. He was the first Hawthorn player to kick five goals in a game, doing so in their round three loss to Collingwood. By the end of the year he had kicked 20 goals, which was enough to top their goal-kicking.
The next season, he returned to Camberwell.
