Mark Wright set to be joined at Crawley by brother Josh on free transfer and pair could face Leeds in FA Cup

MARK WRIGHT is set to be joined at Crawley by his younger brother Josh.

The midfielder is expected to sign for the Red Devils today after negotiating his release from League Two rivals Leyton Orient.

And the Sussex club, based near Gatwick Airport, hope the Wright brothers will have them flying high.

The pair could even make their debuts in Sunday’s FA Cup third round glamour tie at home to Premier League Leeds – when they will be hoping it is not a case of the only way is exit.

Crawley hit the headlines last month when they announced they had signed TV and radio host Mark, 33, on a non-contract basis.

The former Tottenham trainee had a loan spell at the club in 2006-07 – before his carving out a successful reality and media career.

His return to the club is being filmed by the BBC for a new TV documentary.

He and his wife, actress Michelle Keegan, have put Crawley in the limelight.


It is now also likely to include his brother Josh, 31, after he negotiated his release from Orient.

He returned to the Os from Bradford for a third stint with the East End club in June 2019 and made 55 appearances for them, scoring nine goals.

He was pal Justin Edinburgh’s last signing as Orient manager before he died a week later at the age of 49 after suffering a cardiac arrest.

But Josh left Brisbane Road after falling out with favour with current manager Ross Embleton.

He has not appeared for the O's since late November.

The former Charlton trainee has made 420 first team appearances in a career that has also seen him play for Barnet, Brentford, Gillingham, Scunthorpe and Millwall.
