Want to get to know your Blues squad a little better?

21 February 2018

Josh Wright was the man under the spotlight in Saturday's programme 'Roots Review' answering the quick fire questions. Find out how the midfielder got on...

Job before playing football: I left school and went straight into full time football. I was a scholar for a couple of months and when I turned 17 I turned pro.

Hobbies: I like to do a little bit in the gym at my local David Lloyds. Other than that, socialising with friends and family, going out for dinner and walking my dog, but nothing major outside of football.

What you watching on Netflix at the moment? I’ve started Stranger Things. I’m waiting for Power to come back but me and my fiancé started watching Stranger Things last week.

Favourite Actor or Actress: Liam Neeson

Biggest dislike in football: Losing

Favourite current player: I think the best player in the world is Lionel Messi so I’d have to go with him.

First car: BMW 1 Series

Superstitions: I’ve got a lot to be honest, too many to mention. Some basic ones in terms of when I’m in the changing room; my right boot will always go on first, my right shin pad, right sock. But I’ve got too many to be honest, it drives me mad but I’ve always been like that.

Most memorable game: A few stand out. Play-Off Final for Gillingham at Wembley when we got promoted with the last kick of the game – I took the corner for us score in stoppage time. Scoring against Man United for Scunthorpe is up there, and then the hat-trick of penalties against Scunthorpe. It’s one of them three.

Childhood football hero:  I had a few, the likes of Joe Cole, Paolo Di Canio, but if anyone stands out it’s Frank Lampard. I like the way he went about his career, what he achieved and he’s a very nice guy from getting to know him over the years.

Favourite musician/artist: I listen to everything. I like a bit of Whitney Houston and George Benson but if push comes to shove I’d probably say Simply Red.
