David Wright (born 1 May 1980 in Warrington) is an English footballer who plays for Ipswich Town.





He began his career with Crewe Alexandra where he made his debut in 1997, and became a regular in the 1998–99 season, before lending a hand in Crewe's promotion in 2002–03.

Wigan Athletic

In the following season, he joined Wigan Athletic for £500,000 where he managed to achieve promotion as well.

He lost his first-team place to teammate Nicky Eaden, but continued with Wigan throughout their march to the Premier League. In search of first-team football, he joined Norwich City in 2005, playing 5 games.


Wright joined Ipswich for around £200,000 on a 3 year contract in January 2007. He made his debut against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on 13 January, and was sent off a week later in his home debut against Colchester United. He scored his first goal for the club on 22 April against Norwich in the 1–1 draw. His first home goal for Ipswich came against Bristol City in a 6–0 win in November.

Ahead of the 2008–09 season, Wright was considered for the captaincy at Ipswich Town, although missed out to Gareth McAuley. Again, in March 2009, while McAuley was suspended, Wright admitted his desire to captain Ipswich in a game against Wolverhampton Wanderers, but again missed out, this time to Tommy Miller. Ipswich drew that game 0–0. Wright missed most of the rest of the season through a hamstring injury.

At the start of the 2009–10 season, Wright fell out of favour with manager Roy Keane. He did, however, work his way back into the team at left back and on 31 October scored against Derby County at Portman Road to give Ipswich their first win of the season—the last team in the whole league to record their first win.
