Chris Wright Moves to Dungannon Swifts

Portadown FC can confirm that Chris Wright has left his position as first team coach to take up the Assistant Manager role at Dungannon Swifts.

Matthew Tipton said “It’s with great sadness that we see Chris leaving us at first team level. Chris has been alongside myself since I stepped into management, so it will be strange to not have him on the training pitch going forward. However, the opportunity to move into an assistant manager role doesn’t come along too often in football and as I told Chris football is a game where you have to take opportunities to further your career when they arise. He goes with my blessings and in the knowledge that he will always be made welcome at Shamrock Park as first and foremost he is a Portadown fan.”
