He should look back with real pride on a successful career and he is welcome back to the ground anytime."

Danny Wright had this message for the fans:

"I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved with Gloucester City Football Club!

Despite the difficulties faced this season personally, as a team, and how hard it was at times to come to terms with the struggles, it was still a huge pleasure to pull on the shirt for the Tigers and give everything I had for you all, especially all of you fans who kept supporting your club no matter what!! Through all the adversity, it’s still been great to meet so many of you personally and share some memories altogether. I will be back to say hello and have a beer!

It is with incredible emotion that I now announce I will be retiring from my football playing career, a career that has given me opportunities I could never have dreamed of and the very best of memories I will never forget! Thank you to all the players, clubs, and supporters I have been lucky enough to meet, play for, or become the best of friends with!

I now move on to the next chapter of my life which offers big changes but equally exciting opportunities for me in my future!"

Thank you and good luck on the next chapter of your career Danny.
