Matthew Wright’s career faced an early obstacle when his skull was fractured after being hit on the head by a bottle at a party in 2007. It was his under-18 year. Two years later and North Adelaide’s small midfielder earned a rookie opportunity with the Crows and in his first season played 19 games.
From 2011-2015 he was a regular starter, nearly hitting his 100-game milestone. He was delisted, however, and joined Carlton for three seasons and 65 games. Looking to return home, Wright joined Adelaide’s SANFL squad in 2019 as captain, offering experience and leadership to the younger Crows.
