Crawley Town Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of centre-back Will Wright from Gillingham for an undisclosed fee. Will joins the club on a one-year contract with an option to extend for a further year.
Will’s career began in the youth setup at Luton Town before making the move to Hitchin Town in 2017. The 26-year-old joined Colchester United in 2018, and during his time with the U’s, Wright enjoyed a successful loan spell with Dagenham & Redbridge.
At the start of the 2019/20 season, Wright signed for the Daggers on a permanent basis. The centre-back made over 130 appearances for Dagenham and went on to captain the side during his final season at the club.
Wright signed for Gillingham on a free transfer at the start of the 2022/23 season and made just under 50 appearances for the Gills during his time at the Priestfield Stadium.
Speaking on the signing of Will Wright, Manager Scott Lindsey said: “I am delighted to have signed Will from Gillingham. He will be a great player for this football club. He is a centre-half that is very comfortable with the ball and also has the ability to take free-kicks and other set pieces. He is another great addition to the squad.”
