Tommy Wright has not played since 1 February

Sutton United striker Tommy Wright is to take a break from football to deal with mental health issues.

The 23-year-old missed most of last season with a serious knee injury but has scored six goals in 28 National League appearances this term.

Wright says he is now “getting the professional help that’s needed”.

“I have really struggled to cope since my injury, in particular the driving two hours plus up the motorway on my own to training,” he said.
