Vic Wright

After an excellent start to the 1930/31 season with Rotherham United in Third Division North when he scored eight goals in seven matches Wright was sold to first division Sheffield Wednesday.

Kop Quote

Geoff Twentyman had his own way of doing things

“I received a hot tip from a fellow in Dundee about a youngster he rated ‘the best kid ever seen in Scotland’. I drove north to see this boy play. When he ran out his socks were by his ankles. He looked slovenly. Something I don’t like. After only 10 minutes I left. The trip was a complete waste of time. The kid didn’t deserve the rave reviews. He was never going to make the grade. There are many bad scouts sending in reports to clubs. Claiming expenses for their efforts. Many clubs would do better sending their expenses to charity! Their scout’s judgement isn’t up to scratch. I admit I’m not infallible. But I hope to be right 80% of the time.”
