Gills boss proud of midfield star Wright


Gillingham boss Justin Edinburgh has revealed his delight at the attitude of midfielder Josh Wright, in an interview with BBC Radio Kent.

The midfielder, who has become a regular in the team this season, trained with the club in the summer as he sought to earn a contract in order to play football on a regular basis. He had been released by Leyton Orient following their relegation to League Two that season.

Wright subsequently impressed Edinburgh with his desire and attitude and earned himself a short term contract. Since then, after coming on during the opening day, he has started every game he has been available for, amassing 28 appearances for the club so far.

Edinburgh was keen to praise Wright, saying;

“To come here and ask if he could train and then offer his services for no charge is a remarkable feat. It is a credit to Josh, his attitude, commitment and the man he is,”

“Things like that go unrecognised and unspoken about because players get a raw deal at times.”

Wright will be hoping to win a second promotion in his career as the Gills look to challenge at the top of the table as we enter the final run in.
