Professional Footballer Returns to His Attleborough Roots

Professional footballer Danny Wright, who attended Attleborough High School as a student, returned to pay a visit to his educational roots. Danny is currently centre-forward for Cheltenham Town and recently scored the goal that kept them in the Football League. He has had a well travelled football career playing for Histon, Wrexham, Forest Green and Gateshead before signing for Cheltenham.

When Danny was at Attleborough High School, he played in the successful Year 10 County Cup winners side of 2001, managed by then Head of PE, John Lund.

Whilst on his visit, Danny spoke to and inspired young footballers currently attending the Academy. He talked to Brad Davies, Jacob Edwards and Dominic Campbell. As well as the Academy football team, they also play for Attleborough Town under 13s, exactly how Danny began his career. He also met up with Simon Davies who had been his teacher all those years ago.

Danny's brothers Matthew and Steven also attended Attleborough High School and his nieces Bethany, Hannah and Elleinor currently attend the Academy.
