Football career

Manchester City

He was the top-scorer for the Manchester City reserve team in the season 2003–04. On 6 December 2004, he scored his first Premier League goal within minutes of making his league debut against Middlesbrough. After his superb goal in the 3–2 loss to Middlesbrough he had become somewhat of a favourite with the Manchester City fans. He has also played for England Under 19s.

Southampton

After many frustrating appearances for Manchester City, with few goals, he was sold to Championship team Southampton for £500,000 in the summer of 2006. The fee was partly funded by a prize from Coca-Cola won in a competition amongst fans. He made an immediate impact at Southampton, scoring on his debut against Derby County at Pride Parkmarker, and scoring an impressive goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers in a 2–0 win at St. Mary'smarker. He scored a total of 11 goals in the 2006–07 season.

In 2007–08 he started the season with goals against Burnley and Queens Park Rangers.

Plymouth Argyle

At the end of the 2008-09 season following Southampton's relegation to League One, Wright-Phillips was released from his contract at the club. On 15 July 2009, he signed a two-year deal with Plymouth Argyle. After he recovered from a knee injury, Wright-Phillips made his debut for the club on 15 September 2009 against Watford.

Legal issues

On 9 March 2008, Wright-Phillips, along with team-mate Nathan Dyer, was accused of stealing money, mobile phones and other items from bar staff at Bar Bluu in Southseamarker in the early hours of 28 February 2008. CCTV footage taken at the time appeared to show a theft taking place.

On 25 March 2008, Dyer and Wright-Phillips were both arrested over the theft and were questioned at a Portsmouth police station.. They were formally charged with burglary on 17 June. They appeared before Portsmouth magistrates on 8 July 2008. Dyer was convicted of burglary and sentenced to community service and made to pay compensation and costs. Wright-Phillips pleaded not guilty, and opted to be tried at Crown Court. He was due to appear before Portsmouth magistrates again on 2 September 2008.. However the charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.

A year later he and team-mate David McGoldrick were arrested on suspicion of assaulting a Southampton supporter while on a night out. The 21-year-old Saints fan told police that he was attacked by the two footballers in a Southampton street as he made his way home from a night out. The incident is alleged to have happened on Saturday, 7 February after players went drinking in the city. On 13 March, the club announced: "After a thorough police investigation the Crown Prosecution Service has decided not to press any charges against either Bradley Wright-Phillips or David McGoldrick, and no further action will be taken against them."
