Wright looks ahead

30 June 2017

Jake Wright says he and his team-mates are excited about the prospect of playing in the Championship.

The Yorkshire born defender, who remained undefeated in his first season as a Blade, making 30 appearances in the process, acknowledges it will be much tougher in the second tier but believes the Blades can progress further.

He commented: "Last season was one to remember for everyone connected to the club.

"Personally, it was a season that was beyond anything I'd imagined, I came in as a squad player, but ending up playing a lot of games and to not lose all season is remarkable really.

"We always believed we were going to win promotion, that was the aim last pre-season and although we won't set any target this time around, there is no reason, with momentum why we can't do well."

And Wright is hoping to play a part in United's progress, he added: "I love it here and I was delighted when I got the chance to sign here and work with the Gaffer again.

"Now I'm focused on having a good pre-season and hopefully be in the team come the first day of the new season.

"If not, then like last season I will make sure I'm right to step into the team when the chance comes and hopefully make it count."
