CITY will wear black armbands at Tranmere tonight after the sudden death of former kitman, physio and coach Barry Wood.

The club announced they were "devastated" to hear the news that he had passed away yesterday.

Wood worked at Valley Parade until 2011 - the last eight years with the senior team after a previous long stint coaching in City's centre of excellence. He went on to work at the academy at Huddersfield.
