If you wanted to feel old, then the news that Ian Wright’s grandson is old enough to play professional football should just about do it.
Ian Wright’s grandson, D’Margio Wright-Phillips, brought a tear to Wrighty’s eye when he made his debut for Stoke in the FA Cup this weekend.
The 20-year-old started for Stoke as they faced Leyton Orient at home in the third round.
Stoke won 2-0 and Wright-Phillips played the full 90 minutes.
Wright-Phillips has been named on the bench for the last two Championship games, although he has not been brought on.
Wrighty’s grandson plays as a right-winger and started his career with Manchester City’s youth side, although he never made it out of their u18s and spent some time on loan with Blackburn, where he scored against Arsenal:
Wright-Phillips signed for Stoke in February 2021 and has five goals and six assists for Stoke’s u23 side.

If that all doesn’t make you feel old enough, Wright also revealed he is to become a great-grandad.
