Wright was born in Birmingham and played for Hamstead Colliery where he was spotted by a scout from Southampton. He joined the "Saints" in October 1920 and after scoring regularly for the reserves, he made his first-team debut on 11 December 1920, when he replaced Joe Barratt in a Third Division match at Grimsby Town. The team was soundly beaten 3–0, and Wright returned to the reserves together with Charlie Brown and Alec Campbell.
His brief taste of first-team football appeared to have dented his confidence, for Wright only managed one further goal in 26 subsequent reserve-team matches before he was released in May 1921.
