From being a teenager, until the age of 21, Wright played for Bermondsey-based amateur Sunday league club Ten-em-Bee .In 1985 Wright was signed by semi-professional Greenwich Borough and got paid £30 a week.After just six or seven matches, he was spotted by a Crystal Palace scout after a tip-off from Dulwich Hamlet manager Billy Smith and was invited for a trial at Selhurst Park.Having impressed then-manager Steve Coppell,he signed a professional contract for Crystal Palace in August 1985, just three months short of his 22nd birthday.
He quickly made his mark in his first season, scoring nine goals to finish as Palace’s second-highest scorer. When Mark Bright arrived on the Palace scene the following year the duo soon established a successful striking partnership and it was largely their goals which took the club back to the top flight via the playoffs in 1989.Wright was particularly instrumental that season, scoring 24 goals in the Second Division and a grand total of 33 in all competitions.
Wright signed for Arsenal in September 1991 for £2.5m,which at the time was a club record fee.He scored on his debut against Leicester City in a League Cup tie, produced a hat-trick on his league debut against Southampton,and in the final match of the season, scored another hat-trick against the Saints to take his total to 31 goals in all competitions.Wright’s 29 league goals were enough to make him the league’s top scorer.As of 2016–17, only Wright and Teddy Sheringham have led the top-flight scoring charts having scored for two clubs during the season in question.
In July 1998, Wright moved to West Ham United for £500,000.He spent fifteen months as a West Ham player, scoring the winner on his debut against Sheffield Wednesday,without reaching the same form he had at Arsenal. During his spell there he made headlines when he vandalised the referee’s dressing room at Upton Park after being sent off during a match against Leeds United.He had subsequent short spells at Nottingham Forest,Celtic,and Burnley before retiring in 2000.
Wright began his television career as a guest host on Top of the Pops.He was later signed up by ITV to present his own chat show, Friday Night’s All Wright,where he interviewed celebrities such as Elton John,Mariah Carey and Will Smith which ran for two seasons.
Since then, he has gone on to present programmes such as Friends Like These,I’d Do Anything,The National Lottery Wright Ticket and What Kids Really Think.He took over from David Seaman in Autumn 2004 as a team captain on BBC game show They Think It’s All Over, which ran until 2006.Wright has also starred in Men & Motors show Wright Across America, where he fulfils a lifelong dream to travel coast to coast across America on a Harley-Davidson motorbike, a show famous for Wright’s rocky relationship with co-host and legendary custom bike builder Nicky Bootz.
