Josh Wright's Biography

Wright signed for the Club permanently in the summer, securing a third spell at the O’s, having previously played in E10 on loan in both 2013 and 2014, before a first permanent stay in 2015.

A product of Charlton Academy, Wright would spend the earlier years of his career out on loan at Clubs including Barnet, Brentford and Gillingham, before securing a permanent deal with Scunthorpe United in 2009.

In 2011, Wright signed for Millwall and racked up 53 appearances across four seasons at The Den. During his time at the Club, he made two separate loan moves to E10 before a short term permanent deal was agreed. The first was in November 2013, but the move was cut short when he was recalled by his parent club due to an injury crisis.

The second move to Orient was another loan deal which started in October 2014, with the Club opting to make the move permanent in January 2015 on a short term contract.

Following his departure from the O’s, Wright signed for Gillingham and was made captain at the start of his second season at the club by then manager Justin Edinburgh, scoring 14 goals in all competitions.

He was also named the club’s player of the season and players’ player of the season in April 2017 but departed the Kent club to move to Essex side Southend United.

Wright spent a season at The Shrimpers and scored two goals in 26 appearances across all competitions.

Bradford City was the next stop for the midfielder, who was again, appointed captain upon arrival by former O’s player Michael Collins.

After a year in West Yorkshire, Wright departed having made 22 appearances in all competitions for The Bantams before Justin Edinburgh earlier agreed a two-year deal to move Wright back to East London.
