U21 striker dual registers with The Pics!
Our U21 striker Michael Wright has joined Evostick Northern Premier League side Rushall Olympic on a dual registration agreement. Wright has made several first team match day squads over the past 18 months, and finally made his senior debut against Farsley Celtic in the FA Trophy earlier this season.
The Jamaica U20 hit man, who recently registered a hat-trick for his county against Canada U20, started for The Pics in their league cup fixture against Spalding United last night, although he could not prevent his new club being defeated 2-0.
Andy Morrell welcomed the move for Wright, saying "Michael is someone who has been scoring goals regularly in the 21's, and has also been in and around the first team set up. We believe to enhance his development he needs senior football, and to get out to club like Rushall is great for all parties."
Morrell continued, wishing the young striker the best of luck. "We hope he can score some goals, and get some valuable game time under his belt. We want him to prove that he can handle the step up. We wish Michael the best of luck, and also hope that he can help Rushall maintain their promotion push."
