Ian Wright has an electric personality that used to light up the matches in which he played and now brings radiance to his appearances as a TV and radio performer and after-dinner speaker.

He was a lethal striker, whose speed and shooting power devastated many defences in a career during which he gathered 387 goals for seven clubs in 581 League matches. He is a legend at Arsenal, with whom he scored a record 128 League goals in 221 games. Ian netted another nine goals in 33 England appearances.

His fund of stories include tales about his playing days and fascinating chronicles relating to his experiences in front of and behind the television camera and the radio microphone. Awarded an MBE for his services to football and charities, Ian never fails to score.
