Crawley Town release TOWIE star Mark Wright five months after his debut in FA Cup giant-killing win over Leeds United as reality TV star's 'Football League dream' comes to an end
- Mark Wright has been released by League Two club Crawley after five months
- Wright signed non-contract terms in January and made his debut against Leeds
- Crawley defeated the Premier League side in one of the cup's biggest upsets
- Wright has now been released as part of a group of six departing players
Reality television star Mark Wright has been released by League Two club Crawley.
The 34-year-old, who is best known for appearing in the ITV series 'The Only Way Is Essex', joined the Reds last December after a trial and featured in two matches - the FA Cup giant-killing victory over Leeds and a league defeat to Harrogate.
Wright enjoyed a previous spell with Crawley in the 2006-07 season.

Wright was also an unused substitute in Crawley's final day defeat to Bolton earlier this month.
He was one of six players the club announced on Tuesday had been released, along with Tarryn Allarakhia, David Sesay, Stuart Nelson, Josh Doherty and Joe McNerney.
The club triggered one-year contract options on a further five players - Jack Powell, Jordan Tunnicliffe, Tom Nichols, Ricardo German and Glenn Morris - and confirmed they were in contract negotiations with Dannie Bulman.

Crawley's Chief Executive Erdem Konyar said: 'I would like to thank these six players for their efforts during their time at the club.
'Every one of these players gave their all for the badge, and I wish them all the best for the future.'
Earlier in the year Wright found himself included in the FIFA 2020 video games as a virtual star for Crawley, however the downside to this came in the fact that he was deemed the lowest rated player on the series.
Wright was on the books at Tottenham Hotspur as a teenager but was released in the summer of 2005 having failed to make the grade, which he has since admitted was down to him not being committed enough.
BBC cameras documented Wright's journey from his training regimes to the trial with Crawley, before going on to make his first professional appearance for the club.
Wright made his Football League debut earlier in February against Harrogate Town as a left-back.
However, his dream quickly turned into a nightmare as he was substituted at half-time with his side 3-0 down, before eventually going down 3-1.
