Hot-shot Nick looking to sort out future
8:00am Thursday 7th June 2012 in Blue Square Premier
KIDDERMINSTER Harriers striker Nick Wright is keen to sort out his future and admits several ‘top’ sides from the Blue Square Bet Premier have shown an interest in him.
The out of contract 24-year-old has been made an offer by Harriers but confirms he is in talks with several of their league rivals.
Wright, who scored 17 goals last season, admits his priorities are set to change with the impending birth of his daughter in July.
“At the moment it’s a matter of keeping my options open, several of the top clubs in the Conference, like Harriers, have contacted me,” said Wright.
“I don’t want this to go on too long, I want to get this sorted.
“I am about to become a father so it’s not just about me anymore, I have a family to think about.
“In the past I could concentrate on myself but that has changed.”
Harriers also confirmed keeper Tony Breeden, who joined from Leamington in November, is free to find a new club after being released.
With Danny Lewis on track in his recovery from a serious knee injury and Dean Lyness also signed up for next season, Harriers have cover in the keeper department.
Meanwhile, the management duo of Steve Burr and Gary Whild brought in the first new face of the summer on Friday with the capturing of 20-year-old highly-rated centre back Cheyenne Dunkley on a two-year deal.
The former Crewe Alexandra starlet arrives with a glowing record for Hednesford Town, where he helped them reach the play-offs twice in the Northern League Premier and was selected for the division’s team of the year. He also attracted interest from Birmingham City.
Assistant boss Whild said: “We’ve been watching him for a good couple of years now and he is very similar to the likes of Jack Byrne, Matty Blair and Jamille Matt; a player we’ve targeted who we think can make the step up.”
Elsewhere, James Vincent and Marvin Johnson played for England C in their 4-0 loss to a very strong Russian under-21s side in Moscow.
Vincent stood out for England in the International Challenge Trophy game but goals for Shota Bibilov, Artyom Delkin (2) and Fyodor Smolov gunned down the visitors.
