PLAYER BIO

Young centre-back who joined the Pitmen from Vanarama National League North side Kettering Town in March 2022

A member of the Wolves youth system, Ward joined Shrewsbury Town's U18 side in January 2018 after his release from Molineux and was a regular for the Shrews' age group side for the next eighteen months before being released at the end of the 2019-2020 season

Just after the start of the following season, Ward joined Southern Premier League central side Bromsgrove Sporting but was to make only one appearance for the Rouslers in a game against Biggleswade Town before the season was brought to an abrupt halt due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and subsequently voided

Ward trialled for Kettering in the summer of 2021 and impressed manager Paul Cox sufficiently to be offered a deal for the forthcoming season. The young defender was a regular in the Poppies' defence in the first half of the season, making thirteen starts before suffering an injury that kept him out of the side in early 2022. After returning to the side, Ward elected to make the move to the PRG Stadium @ Keys Park in March 2022 ahead of the Pitmen's home game against Stratford Town
