Profile

Informed that he was to be released by Essex towards the end of the 2011 season, it seemed Chris Wright's career was drifting to an inglorious conclusion. While Gloucestershire expressed an interest in signing him, he had already passed through the systems of three clubs - Hampshire, where he played for the youth teams but wasn't deemed worthy of a contract; Middlesex and Essex - without making the impact he would have liked. The tag "journeyman seamer" sat uncomfortably on his shoulders.
