In the Nationwide League title-winning campaign of 2001-2002, Shaun Wright-Phillips started to reverse the equation that had been applied to him. The process that started with him being known as the adopted son of the former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright is one that will end in Ian Wright being as well known as the father of the City midfielder if Shaun's promise is fulfilled. 
Shaun was released by Nottingham Forest, upon which the then City manager Joe Royle snapped him up for the Blues' Youth Academy. The work Shaun has put in since then is something that has impressed everyone at Maine Road.
He scored his first goal for the club in City's win over Millwall but his delight was tinged with some disappointment as there were no City fans there to see him smash home the winner at the New Den. He made up for that as City cruised past Bradford City 4-1 in December and nearly disappeared in the Platt Lane crowd as he celebrated his second goal for the club, his first at Maine Road. 
The contribution he made in the latter half of the season was one of the brightest points of the campaign and he was rewarded with the club's Young Player of the Year award for the second season running. Another sign of the progress he has made was being selected for the England under-21 squad, making the team for a friendly against Italy.
