Andre Wright signs

Striker Andre Wright joins the Honest Men

Ayr United have signed striker Andre Wright on a deal until the end of the season. The 24-year-old joins the Honest Men having last played for League of Ireland Premier Division side Bohemians.

Mark Kerr said: “We are delighted to get this deal done and we have been working hard to add some presence up front. Andre has a good pedigree and was highly thought of when coming through at West Brom. He comes to us hungry and at the right age and will hopefully make a big impact to the way we play. Now I feel that we have some really good options in the forward area of the pitch.”

Hailing from the West Midlands, Wright started his career with local side West Bromwich Albion and gained first team experience during his time with the Baggies on loan at Kidderminster Harriers, Torquay United and Coventry City.

In July 2019, Wright moved to Dublin side Bohemians for the second-half of the League of Ireland season and scored 16 goals in 35 appearances for the Bohs, earning the accolade of a place in the 2020 PFA Team of the Season.

Pending international clearance Andre will go straight into the squad for the trip to Dundee tomorrow evening (Tuesday 26th January).
