Woolston trained with the first team on a regular basis, but he usually played for the U23 side when he was available. He was forced to end his brief professional career due to complications from two procedures and extensive rehabilitation.
When asked about his decision to retire, Woolston told Manchester United's official website, "It's been incredibly difficult to come to terms with the fact that I'm just 23 years old, but I'm feeling a lot more positive now."
The 23-year-old is obviously distraught as a result of the news, but the club has generously offered him a support program to assist him in his future endeavors, which he has accepted.
Woolston will receive assistance with education sessions and coaching badges, among other things, and it's wonderful to know that Manchester United will be looking after him in this way.
It has been stated on the Official Manchester United website that Woolston's goalkeeping teammates have expressed their support for him.
"It was a depressing experience. The news that he has died is very sad. I have been training with him when he was healthy, and it is very sad. I wish him the best of luck. The Spaniard described him as "a nice boy and a great goalie, and we all feel very sorry about him."
"Look, I was talking to Woolly last night, and it's awful for him and for everyone around him. He was a pleasure to work with at all levels of experience and age. I even recall playing against him when he was at Newcastle when I was in the lesser age groups back then. To retire at such a young age is heartbreaking," Dean Henderson expressed his feelings.
Woolston, even if he doesn't play football, should have a long and fruitful career in the sport of football. At the age of 23, he still has his entire life ahead of him, and it will be incredible to see him involved with the club in a coaching capacity in the future.
Woolston had only recently signed a new deal with the Manchester club, but he was highly regarded by his teammates.
