The Only Way Is Thurrock

Reality TV star Mark Wright has signed for Blue Square South side Thurrock. The ex-Tottenham and Southend trainee was previously at Heybridge Swifts. He will be in action straight away, as the club play Dartford the same day he signed.

The Only Way Is Essex star Wright is a 24 year old defender, and he can certainly expect to be busy. His new club are currently second bottom in the table, with just two wins from the first thirteen games, and have a less than impressive goal difference of -20. He has also previously played for Crawley Town, Lewes and Rushden & Diamonds, but has never got any stability in his career.

This is not a publicity stunt though. Club chairman Tommy Smith has told the local press that it is a serious signing, and that the player will be an important addition to the team. Time will tell.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
