SOUTHERN LEAGUE: Callum keen to keep on the Wright path

YOUNGSTER Callum Wright is hoping he can continue to make the grade for Chippenham Town and earn a regular spot in Mark Collier’s starting line-up.
The 19-year-old student, who plays for the University of Bath in midweek, made his third consecutive start in last weekend’s goalless draw with Corby Town.
Utility man Wright, who had a spell at Wootton Bassett Town earlier this season, was snapped up by Collier within the Bluebirds boss’s first few weeks in charge and the former Swindon Town and Chelsea academy player is hoping that his patience has paid off.
“I’ve bided my time, which I expected. I’ve known Mark for a long time through different things to do with football and I’ve been at a few clubs but this suits me well, with being at uni in Bath,” said Wright.
“I play at the uni and we have a link with the under 21s at Bath City so I was doing a but of that (before joining Chippenham). Before that I played academy football at Bristol City and Swindon and I was at Chelsea for a few years.
“It’s good for me to come into the team and be unbeaten so far, I’m enjoying it. Hopefully I can have a good run of games in the team.”
Chippenham face Hemel Hempstead Town away from home in the Calor League Premier Division this weekend.
