Solihull Moors snap up experienced striker

EXPERIENCED forward Danny Wright has joined National League side Solihull Moors.

Wright played nine seasons in no-League’s top flight in service of seven clubs, scoring more than 100 goals in more than 300 appearances.

He began his career at Dereham Town before transferring to Histon, where he helped them win the Conference South title in 2006/07.

In 2010, he moved to Cambridge United on a three-year deal.

He spent one season there and finished as top scorer in a struggling team before leaving for Wrexham with whom he won the FA Trophy against Grimsby in 2013.

That was followed by a year at Forest Green, before five months at both Gateshead and Kidderminster.

Wright signed a one-year deal at Cheltenham Town in June 2015.

Cheltenham were promoted to the Football League at the end of Wright’s first year with the Robins when he was Supporters’ Player of the Season.

In the 2016–17 season, he made his Football League debut at the age of 31 against Leyton Orient on August 6.

In his time with Cheltenham, Wright scored 34 goals in 117 appearances.
