Wright spent his formative years at Langwarrin, before playing a season each with Mornington and Dandenong Thunder. He was identified as a promising talent, eventually earning selection for the Victorian state team in 2007. He honed his skills further with the Victorian Institute of Sport, before moving overseas in July 2009, signing a two-year scholarship with Preston North End after a protracted clearance saga.
Preston North End
In his first season with Preston North End, Wright played predominantly as a centre-half for the Reserves and Under 18s teams, but was eventually called up to the senior squad in April, sitting on the bench for the club’s fixture away to Coventry City. He commenced the 2010–11 season with his debut senior appearance in the first round of the League Cup, playing the full 90 minutes in the Lilywhites' 5–0 win against Stockport County. On 13 December 2010, Wright was handed a two and a half year professional contract.
Wright was voted Young player of the year of Preston North End for the season 2012/13. On 1 May 2013 he was handed a new two year contract, with the option of staying at Preston North End for another year.
Wright was a member of the Australia Under 17 squad that reached the quarter-finals of the Asian Under 16 World Cup Qualifiers, narrowly missing a place at the 2009 FIFA Under 17 World Cup when they lost 2–3 against the UAE.
