Gloucester City are pleased to announce the signing of former Torquay United front man Andre Wright, Bristol Rovers Striker Harry Warwick and Wales Under-19 Goalkeeper Adam Pzrybek from West Bromwich Albion.
A product of West Bromwich Albion‘s academy, Wright was loaned out to Kidderminster Harriers for the first half of the 2015–16 season in order to gain experience of senior football. Wright scored his first senior goal in a 3–1 defeat to Wrexham on 18 August 2015, it was his only goal in 12 league appearances for Kidderminster. The loan spell at Kidderminster was cut short in November 2015 to allow Wright to join fellow National League relegation contenders Torquay United on loan, initially until 2 January 2016. The loan deal was extended until the end of the 2015–16 season, with Wright going on to score three goals in 22 league appearances to help Torquay survive relegation from the National League, at the expense of former club Kidderminster Harriers.
Wright has since gone on loans to Coventry City, Yeovil and more recently a return to Torquay. Adam Przybek is yet another product of the West Brom Academy, is very well thought of within the Club and features regularly at International Level for Wales Under 19’s. Harry Warwick is an exciting young player who is currently making a name for himself in the Bristol Rovers Academy. Andre has joined City until the end of the season with both Adam and Harry signing until the new year.
Chris Todd had this to say, “Andre has been training with us for the last two weeks and has shown that he can offer us a different dimension. He is a player that has gone missing in the system after starting out at West Brom. He needs an opportunity and a home to express his talent and we can give him that here.”
“Adam brings good pedigree having played for the Wales Under 19’s and West Bromwich Albion Under 23’s. I’m aware that West Brom have big plans for Adam, we’re delighted that we can get him at this stage in his career and want to thank West Bromwich for allowing him to come.”
“Harry is an exciting young player who has pace, power and an eye for goal. He comes to the club looking for experience and for a chance to develop his super talent. He came highly recommended by Lee Mansell, who’s a very close friend of mine. I’d like to thank both him and Bristol Rovers for making the move happen.”
Gloucester City face Welling Untied away in the National League South tomorrow and Wealdsdtone away on Monday night before returning to the Jubilee on November the 3rd to face Dartford, kick off 15:00.
