New recruit Wright 'buzzing' to be part of Swindon Town's project

Defender Will Wright declared he was “ready to get going” as part of the Swindon Town squad, having become the club’s fifth new signing of the summer.

The 27-year-old joins up with Mark Kennedy’s side having achieved promotion with Crawley Town last campaign.

Wright played 45 regular league season fixtures for the Red Devils in 2023/24, as well as helping them earn promotion via the play-offs.

But having reportedly turned down a new deal with Crawley, he is looking forward to trying to replicate his previous success with Swindon.

The defender told the club website: "I'm buzzing, now it's all done and all real. I'm ready to get going and get my teeth into pre-season.

"The club speaks for itself and it's such a big club at this level, and even at the league above as well.

“I think the next move after last season's success was a big one for myself, so coming here with the project and the ambition they're setting out, it just felt right."

On Wright’s arrival, head of football Jamie Russell said: "We are delighted that Will has joined us from now-League One Crawley, as there was a lot of competition for Will's signature and we are thrilled that he is joining us for the 2024/25 season.

"Will played over 40 League Two games last season and more importantly, gained promotion which is a key area of our recruitment this summer and can be shown with this signing but also Ollie Clarke at the start of this summer transfer window.

"He not only offers defensive solidity with a promotion-winning mindset, but also he is a threat when attacking too, which can be shown by the number of goal involvements he had in Crawley's season last campaign, and we're really looking forward to seeing him in a Swindon Town shirt soon."

Swindon will begin their pre-season campaign at Swindon Supermarine on Saturday, July 6, with an away game at Chesterfield on Friday, August 9, to begin their league schedule.
