MARK Wright strips topless and reveals he’s lost a stone since signing with League Two football team Crawley Town FC.
The radio presenter talked about the “gruelling three months” of getting his body ready to make his professional debut in Crawley’s 3-0 win in the FA Cup over Leeds United.Mark revealed he has lost a stone since signing for Crawley Town FC[/caption]
Mark, 33, took off his shirt and uploaded a picture to his Instagram story with team mate Max Watters after Crawley’s phenomenal win yesterday with the caption: “Next round of the FA Cup!! LETS GO!”
The former TOWIE star appeared on Heart Breakfast with Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston this morning to discuss his incredible achievement.
He shared: “I never weigh myself, but I weighed myself when I started playing for Crawley and I weighed myself last week and I think I’ve done a stone.”
Before appearing on TOWIE, featuring on I’m A Celeb and getting a taste of the glitz and glam of the American world of showbiz, Mark’s dream was to become a professional footballer.Mark was ecstatic after Crawley’s victory yesterday[/caption] Mark started his new fitness programme called Train Wright in the summer[/caption]
Mark enjoyed a fruitful youth career with spells at West Ham United and Arsenal, before being released by Tottenham Hotspur.
Wright signed for Crawley back in December at 33, usually an age where footballers’ careers are starting to wind down.
But despite approaching his mid-thirties, Mark believes having “less miles on the clock” compared to other players his age will work in his favour.
He explained: “It’s been a gruelling three months I must say, trying to get my body ready for it.
“The way I look at it, I am 33 but I’ve got less miles on the clock compared to the other players at 33.”Mark signed for Crawley back in December[/caption] Crawley defeated Leeds United 3-0 in the third round of the FA Cup[/caption]
