Richard became a permanent fixture in the Brakes defence last season, making the right wing back slot his own, and contributed fully to an outstanding campaign overall for the Brakes back line. However, his marauding runs upfield and link up play in attack became a real feature of his game as the season progressed.
Richard worked his way through the ranks at Walsall to make his first team debut at a young age and went on to make nearly 200 appearances for the Saddlers over 6 seasons before joining Worcester City in 2013 after a brief spell with Pelsall Villa. He then moved on to Solihull Moors before joining Leamington towards the end of our last spell in the National League North in 2014/15 and has now topped a century of appearances for the club. A wealth of experience in the professional game has been of great benefit to Brakes during his time with us.
