I am very happy to sign. This is a club that can offer me a lot now and in the future, and I hope to stay with them for a while. I want to play week in week out, that is the only real way you improve as a footballer, and Canterbury United offered me this, so I had to join. I am also very much looking forward to the challenge of taking them to the top
After a season, he left to join Chasetown, who he joined on a free transfer, and played a season in the Northern Premier League First Division South, before re-joining Hinckley United the following season.
He once again left after a season, and was a free agent for the summer before linking up with Canterbury United. Boss James Robinson was quick to praise the Birmingham-born defender, who also holds and English passport, saying he was a ‘brilliant defender’.
Richard is a very good, young defender who will contribute lots to the team over the next couple of years. He has experience at a higher level, which is also very important if we want to get where we are aiming for – it means he’s been tested against better players, and come out alive. He’ll be a very valuable player for us.
