Player Profile

Scottish attacker Wright became somewhat a cult hero for Foxes fans during his three-year stint at Filbert Street between 1989-1992, making almost 150 appearances for the club and returning a decent tally of goals along the way.

He turned professional with Leeds United and started life as an out-and-out striker, but soon changed to play on the wing when he moved on to Oldham Athletic and then Leicester.

He'd collected Scotland U21 honours on his arrival at Filbert Street and was a regular in his three years of Division Two football in the famous blue and white. He was a fast and tricky winger, often leaving supporters on the edge of their seats, but there was also a frustrating aspect in his play with the final ball, or cross, sometimes going astray.

Still, he was a threatening flank player and also left the club on a high, being the top-scorer in his final season. Indeed, his performances caught top-flight attention and he moved on to Middlesbrough, although that top-flight status didn't last too long as 'Boro suffered relegation and Wright lost his regular starting role.

He did help his next club, Bradford City, to promotion to Division One in 1996 and also had a short spell back at Oldham before moving north of the border to feature for St Johnstone and Livingston. His former team-mate Ian Snodin brought him back south of the border to play Conference football for Doncaster Rovers before Wright finished his playing career with King's Lynn.
