Kevin Wright: Carlisle United sign ex-Chelsea defender on short-term basis
Carlisle United have signed defender Kevin Wright on a short-term deal, that expires on 2 January 2017.
Wright, 20, had been with former club Chelsea since the age of 10, and signed a professional deal in 2013.
Injuries hampered his first-team progress at Stamford Bridge, although the full-back did play youth team, reserve and under-21 games.
"It's very exciting for me, it's been a long journey since I left Chelsea," Wright told BBC Radio Cumbria.
"I'm excited and in love with the fans and the club already."
Wright admits his Chelsea departure was tough to take, having been so close to the club since childhood.
"It was quite upsetting because it was a big part of my life for so long,"
"That said, I was also ready to take the next step and start pushing for first-team football because that's my end goal."
