Wright, Bernie I was at Central Grammar School with Bernie and we played rugby, football, cricket, basketball and chess together. We were good friends. Can anyone help me get in touch with him?

Wright, Bernie If my memory serves me well we (Everton) never won a game in which he played. Then that was quite an achievement; not so nowadays.

Wright, Bernie As an Evertonian I witnessed Bernie's only goal at Goodison against West Ham. He put himself about on the pitch. Great to hear that he is doing well.

Wright, Bernie What a player, defenders used to bounce off him. When he played with Buckley and Andrews at Walsall it was a talented and fearsome front line. I loved Bernie as did and still do many supporters of my age.

Wright, Bernie hi bernie wright is fine he is still a very fit man clocking up over 50 miles a week in cycling and power walking , he goes on many holidays every year and enjoys travel.
he still loves horse racing and rugby but doesnt watch modern football - he thinks its gone soft.
he enjoys a light flutter on the horses but never wins much lol.
for those that dont know he went on to become a referee for 20 odd years and was always invited to do matches for pro club , finals and so forth.he was actually very highly rated and had the respect of all the player for the way he refed the games.
he is not one for re-unions and things choosing to keep himself to himself
and for those that remember him back in the day he likes a light drink these days and not many fights.

I unfortunately never got looked at, oh well no regrets. Would love to know where he is now.
