In Richard’s first year as a professional at Derby he achieved his boyhood dream of representing his country at both U18 and U20 levels playing alongside the likes of Steven Gerard, Michael Owen and fellow goalkeeper Paul Robinson.
During the 3 years Richard spent at Derby, first team opportunities were limited due to the quality of the two goalkeepers ahead of him, Russell Hoult and Mart Poom. To gain regular first team experience Richard was sent out on loan to various league clubs and had spells with Carlisle Utd, Macclesfield Town, Hull City, Birmingham City and Oxford Utd.
After seeing out his contract at Derby, Richard signed permanently for Oxford Utd in his quest for regular first team football and accumulated over 100 league games winning two player of the year awards and a place in the PFA’s league 1 team of the year, which is an amazing achievement as is it picked by the professional players of league 1.
Richard later moved south to play for Colchester Utd where he finished his professional playing career, he went on to play nearly 400 games at semi-pro level before deciding to call it a day 18 months ago and concentrate on his GK Coaching Company. He has been lucky enough in his career to work with many exceptional Goalkeeping Coaches including; Eric Steele[Man Utd],Ray Clemence(England), Nigel Spinks[Birmingham City], Jim Barron[Northampton Town], Roy Tunks [England,Blackburn Rovers),Pete Riches & Alan Judge[Oxford Utd].
With all his experience in working with these highly respected coaches we believe at J4K that Richard has the knowledge and experience to benefit the Goalkeepers of the future.
