Wright Joins Dozzell in Having Option Exercised
Tuesday, 5th May 2020 14:15
Town have taken the one-year option on keeper Harry Wright’s contract, in addition to taking the further season on Andre Dozzell’s deal, as revealed by TWTD earlier today.
Wright, 21, the son of former Blue Richard, is yet to make a first-team appearance but has been on the bench for the senior side.
The one-time Manchester City academy youngster, a regular in the U23s, has missed much of 2019/20 with a knee injury and might otherwise have appeared in the Leasing.com Trophy.
The length of Wright’s contract has been the subject of some confusion due to an error made when it was announced that he had signed his terms in December 2018.
Like Dozzell, his deal would have been up this summer had Town not exercised their option.
In addition to Wright and Dozzell, seven other players also have contracts which are up this summer with the club also having options to keep them for another season: Cole Skuse, Gwion Edwards, Will Keane, Jordan Roberts, Danny Rowe, Armando Dobra and Brett McGavin.
As previously reported, Dobra has all but agreed a new three-year contract which will be signed when he returns to Portman Road, while it seems certain that Roberts, who has spent the second half of the season on loan at Gillingham, will move on.

I am in my late 50s and have supported the club for as long as I can remember.
Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
