More news, no ads


Harry Wright is joining Swedish side GAIS on loan.

The Town goalkeeper will team up with the Gothenburg-based club for the remainder of their season, which concludes in early December.

Harry is looking forward to both the footballing aspect and life experience of moving to Sweden.

"I played against Colchester for the first time with the first-team and that was brilliant,” he told the Club website.

"I felt really good and I felt sharp. I didn’t want to stop. Having this loan on the back of the pre-season we’ve had is just a great opportunity to play some football and to find myself as a 'keeper and as a person.

"It’ll be great to be out there and get to know the different culture. I’ve never been to Sweden so it’ll be a different experience for me. It’s just a great opportunity to play some football and to see what their style of football is like compared to here. I’m good with my feet so I’d like to see if I can help them with playing out from the back."

Striker Aaron Drinan also went on loan to the same side at the beginning of last season, something that has made Harry’s decision easier.

"You can do as much in training as you want but playing games is what makes you better as a player. I’m going to get shots, I’m going to make saves," added the son of former Town favourite, Richard Wright.

Aaron was out there last year and he said it was really good. He’s mentioned to me how the lads are great there and a tight-knit group. He said on days off that some of the scenery is amazing and that it was a top place to be - I'm looking forward to it."
