Mark Anthony Wright (born 24 February 1982 in Wolverhampton) is an English professional footballer who is contracted to English League Two side Shrewsbury Town.



Wright is a product of Walsall's youth system, and aside from a short spell at Nuneaton Borough for some first-team experience, he plied his trade steadily at the Bescot Stadium with Walsall for seven years.

His first appearance in a Walsall shirt came as a late substitute in the 1–1 draw at West Ham United in the 2000–01 League Cup second round. Despite a further handful of substitute appearances he did not make the side regularly, and the 2001–02 season saw him spend some time at Nuneaton. Wright was judged ready for stand-in starting action in 2002, and finally cemented his place in the team by the beginning of 2004. He was released by Walsall in May 2007 and subsequently joined Milton Keynes Dons.

At Milton Keynes he enjoyed arguably the best season of his career, netting 13 goals from the right wing, many of them crucial. He finished the 2007/08 season as Milton Keynes' top goalscorer, as the Dons won both the League Two title and the Football League Trophy.

On 19 June 2009, Wright signed a two-year contract at League One rivals Brighton & Hove Albion.[2] After failing to settle in the area, Wright transferred to Bristol Rovers for an undisclosed fee on transfer deadline day, 1 September 2009.[3]

However, he has also struggled to settle with his new club, and as a result, he was transfer-listed at the end of the season.

On 16 July 2010, it was announced he was on loan at Shrewsbury Town. On 23 November 2010 he scored a hat-trick in a 4–0 win for Shrewsbury Town against Hereford United. On 7 January 2011, it was announced he would join the club on a permanent basis.[4]
