Kenny Wright

Kenny WrightKenny Wright came through the much praised Motherwell youth set up which had just recently given the likes of youngsters James McFadden and Stephen Pearson the big break through needed for them to progress their footballing careers, upon their departures thisĀ opened the door for the next batch of Motherwell starlets to come through and make a name for themselves such as Kenny and Paul Quinn.

Wright made his first team debut only a short time after the club was plunged into administration in April 2002, he came off the bench to feature in a 4-1 victory over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park. His first senior goal came when the ‘Well entertained Aberdeen at Fir Park on 24th February 2004, he came on as a substitute and with his first touch of the ball, he scored the vital winner.

He failed to impose himself into the first team scene at Motherwell with the vast bulk of his appearances coming from the subs bench. It would probably be fair to say he had a great scoring ability for the reserves but injuries and a consistent run in the side hampered any potential progress. He had spells in the lower Scottish leagues with Arbroath, Elgin City, Albion Rovers and Stranraer before moving into the juniors.
