Jabba's Comments

Compact Scottish forward who was picked up by the club as a 16-year-old and made his debut at the age of 17. The following season he became a regular, and his goal-scoring talents looked like they had a promising future at the club. After a couple of injuries, he found himself sidelined and subsequently sold to Oldham by Billy Bremner. His one and only international honour came as a substitute in an U-21 game against Belgium. His best spell as a player probably came during his time at Leicester, when he held down a regular place for 3 years and picked up a respectable number of goals: his time at Boro was less productive with injuries starting to prove his undoing.

Sara Millard says: Tommy Wright currently plays for KLFC or so his sponsored car says so, but who are they? Any ideas? (Sara later answers herself: Kings Lynn Football Club). He currently trains St Philips RC School's football team (Middleton, Leeds), where he attends church most Sundays!

Scott says: Tommy Wright had a spell at St Johnstone and Livingston as well

Garry Wright says: i am tommy's nephew he is now retired playing he is youth coach at oldham and still stays in wakefield

Danny Connelly says: I used live next door to Tommy when he played at Oldham. I remember Dennis Irwin used to come and pick him up in the morning for training. His wife was one of Benny Hills Angels her name is Joanne. I now live in Florida USA but remember the nights we used to kick a ball around on Parkside School soccer field in Beeston Leeds. Would really like to speak with him again.

Mark Whittam says: i am good mates with tommys son and tommy has trained myself in playing. he is football a great bloke and has time for anyone that talks to him

Jack says: I played under Tommy when i was at Oldham Athletic U 16's, he was my manager and he is probably the best manager i have had. It would be nice to speak to him again.

scott white says: I played against - mostly missed - Tommy regularly at primary school and high school level. He was the finest player we ever came up against. He played they won easily. If he did not play we won - as long as we got basy Ainsley! Loved his football, his folks and his friends. A top bloke
