Kevin Wright

Chelsea
Kevin was born on 28 December 1995 in Walthamstow and came in on trial at Under-10. Then he was an attack-minded left-sided player but has since moved deeper to left-back with very pleasing results. He is honest, hard-working and always smiling and is now a first-year scholar.

Wright has made more appearances than any other player in the league for our Under-18s this season, and the youngster was handed his FA Youth Cup debut in the semi-final first leg against Liverpool at Anfield, and retained his place in the side for the return at Stamford Bridge.

He also appeared five times during our NextGen campaign and has featured once this season for the Under-21s.
