player bio

Winger who joined the Pitmen from Vanarama National League North strugglers Kettering Town in October 2019

A trainee at hometown club Notts County, the son of former Nottingham Forest and England midfielder Steve failed to make an appearance at Meadow Lane before being allowed to sign for Lincoln City in February 2015. He made a handful of appearances at Sincil Bank over the next two seasons in the National League, but spent most of his time at Lincoln out on loan to local non-league sides


He joined Stamford in November 2015 for a four-month loan, followed by a similar loan at National League North side Gainsborough Trinity the following season. In September 2016, he joined Evo-Stik Premier League side Stafford Rangers on a month's loan, making a handful of appearances for Rangers , including two games against the Pitmen in the F.A. Trophy

Hodge was on the move again in December 2016, joining National League North strugglers AFC Telford United for a successful two month loan period. After leaving Lincoln in the summer of 2017, Hodge made a return to Notts County after the Magpies had offered him a one-year contract to return to Meadow Lane. he made one substitute appearance before being loaned out to National League North neighbours Alfreton Town for a short spell in January 2018

After his second contract at Notts County had expired, Hodge linked up with Burton Albion after impressing during the 2018 pre-season programme. He made two substitute appearances for the Brewers before being released in January 2019, where he took a two-month break from football


In March 2019, he linked up with Leamington on a short-term deal until the end of the 2018-2019 season, making a handful of appearances for the National League North side before leaving at the end of the season. He linked up with Nicky Eaden's Kettering Town side in the summer of 2019,earning himself a deal with the Poppies at the end of pre-season. He was a regular in Eaden's squad as Kettering struggled to adapt to life in National League North, culminating in Eaden leaving the club in September 2019 after defeat to Sutton Coldfield Town in the F.A. Cup after a replay 

Eaden's departure also signalled that of Hodge, who joined the Pitmen a few days later after agreeing to move to the PRG Stadium @ Keys Park
