Started his speedway with Newcastle in 2001, staying with the Diamonds the following year before moving to Sheffield in 2003 for the first of 4 season with the Tigers. In between he rode for Peterborough for 4 seasons, Scunthorpe 2008, 2011 also Leicester in 2011. Redcar in 2014 and 2017, Berwick in 2015. Plus various clubs in Sweden and Poland.
Richard was refused permission to sign
for Birmingham in 2016 to replace injured captain Tom Perry, but was
controversially allowed to sign for Cradley in 2017! He replaced the
injured Dan Greenwood. He was about to retire following a poor run of
form with Redcar and had put his equipment up for sale. He needed to get
his confidence back and he certainly did that with a 12 point maximum
against the Isle of Wight at Perry Barr on his debut for Cradley.
