MARK
WRIGHT

Mark Wright was most recently the manager of Floriana FC in Malta.

Wright is a former England defender who has served an apprenticeship as a manager in the cash-starved lower reaches.
 
The ex-Liverpool centre half proved a buffer against hard times for Chester City, leading them back into the Football League in 2003.
 
Wright began the first of three spells at Chester in '01 having had previous managerial experience with non-league Southport and Oxford United.
 
Initially, he kept a struggling side afloat in the Conference, preventing relegation to the Northern Premier League.
 
After a near miss on promotion the following season - when City were beaten by Doncaster in the play-offs - he guided them back to the League as Conference champions.
 
He has since had further spells in charge of Peterborough and twice back at Chester where he staved off relegation to the Conference in 2006.
 
Oxfordshire-born Mark began his career with his local club before moving to then top-flight Southampton in 1982. His five years with the club saw them runners-up to champions Liverpool in '84.
 
Saints collected £760,000, a club record at the time, when Wright moved to Derby where he became captain in a four-year stay.
 
His career peaked in seven years with Liverpool following a £2.5m transfer to Anfield. Wright skippered Liverpool to the FA Cup in 1992.
 
He collected 45 caps in a 12-year international career. His only goal - at the 1990 World Cup - is well remembered. Mark's headed winner against Egypt ensured that Bobby Robson's side progressed beyond the group stages in a run to the semi-finals.
