Continuing my recent look at different players’ 2018/19 campaigns, now it’s the turn of Aberdeen winger Scott Wright to go under the microscope.
Wright played for two clubs in the SPFL this season. The Aberdeen youngster had featured a bit for Derek McInnes’ side up until January. It was his loan move to Dundee in the winter window though that really saw him kick on.
A pacey winger with plenty of skill, Wright showed he has the potential to be a decent wideman during the 2018/19 campaign.
Wright still faces a selection battle at Aberdeen
Overall, Wright’s stats for the Premiership season come in at three goals and six assists in 26 games. Considering only 15 of those were starts, 11 of which were with relegated Dundee, those stats are ok.
Wright couldn’t help prevent the Dee slipping into the second tier, but he was one of their brighter sparks in a bleak second half of the campaign. He was always direct with his play, often running at the full-back, trying to beat them with pace and skill.
On his day he can be a decent player to watch. There were times at Dens Park though where he would get posted missing, failing to make an impact from the flanks.
At Aberdeen this season he featured sporadically and never made much of an impact. Much of his impact was made from the bench in cameo appearances, only making four starts for the Dons this term.
In terms of his career, this has been a decent one for Wright. He’s got vital first team football experience that’ll hopefully see him kick on.
With Niall McGinn, Ryan Hedges, Connor McLennan and potentially Gary Mackay-Steven all at the club next season, it’ll be a challenge to break into McInnes’ regular plans.
Still, on this season alone, it has been a pretty decent campaign on a personal level for Wright.
