Keepers Przybek and Wright Among Four Exiting Town
Thursday, 8th Apr 2021 13:16

TWTD understands the Blues have parted company with young pros Harry Wright, Adam Przybek, Kai Brown and Zak Brown. All four had contracts which are up at the end of the season.

Wales U21 international keeper Adam Przybek (above), 21, moves on having made one first-team appearance, in the Trophy tie at Peterborough last season in which he saw Town to a penalty shoot-out victory. The former West Brom youngster is currently on loan at Chesterfield.

Fellow keeper Wright, 22, the son of Town legend Richard, departs without having made a senior appearance for the Blues.

Felixstowe-based striker Zak Brown, the brother of MK Dons frontman Charlie, who left Town for Chelsea as a scholar, made his only senior appearance in the Papa John’s Trophy game at Crawley as a substitute.

Forward Kai Brown, 19, who joined the Blues from Grays Athletic in the summer of 2018, moves on having been unable to break into the first team.

We understand a number of other young players whose terms are up this summer have also been told they will not be offered new deals.

The sort of professional decisions which have to be made ,and are not likely to be surprising to many in Football .
As supporters we must wish them very good fortune for the future .

It’s sad. Would have loved Harry Wright to have made it. Also Zak brown always seems to pop up for the u-23s honestly thought he might be the next one through. Still, they’re young but not that young and we have a bloated squad. All the best to them all

Come the final game of the season we will have about 10 players.
Might as well disband the academy like Brentford have done it hasn't been detrimental to their prospects.

I’m a little surprised that Przybek is being released as from what I’ve seen he looks far better than our two first team keepers neither of whom could catch a cold. Coaches watch them everyday so one has to trust their judgement. A new number 1 has to be a priority if we are to be serious promotion contenders.

Surprised to see both young goalkeepers exiting, especially when our two regular keepers don't exactly inspire a high level of confidence on occasions. However, as has been said, we must trust the judgement of those who see them all the time and hopefully, with the advent of the takeover and with PC there is a plan. Wishing them all the very best for the future.

Heart break for the boys but some will find other clubs and make a careers for themselves and some will make other careers for themselves. Good luck boys

Przybek is the one surprise for me !

I really don't think there will be many of these type of players remaining by the end of the season.

How many out of contract players will be offered contracts ? Wonder how many will be told find another club will we be left with half a squad ?

Good luck to all of them. Being released by Town is not always a bad career move.

I hope we don't have another Nick Pope situation.

Always disappointing for young players to be let go. However our focus for next season with the first team squad has to be quality over quantity so presumably coaches have indicated that they do not see those let go as long term prospects.
With respect to the first team squad I expect a significant clear out with wages freed up and a cash injection from the new owners leading to the acquisition of a smaller number of players who can take us forward. Very interesting times.....

It’s difficult for these lads, and football is a very ruthless business but I remember that a few years ago Chelsea were very interested in Brown and there was a lot of interest in Crowe from some Premier league clubs. With this in mind....... What are the coaches doing to turn these promising youngsters into failures at our mid table League 1 shambles of a club ???? If they were that good, why have we failed to develop them further. Questions need to be asked within the academy. I bet they will progress nicely elsewhere much to our regret.

My thoughts exactly..

If lambert were still manager and evans still owner those praising these decisions would be having a hissy fit.
