Another talented graduate from the Youth Team, Jordan Richards agreed his first professional contract with the Club in 2011 and extended that deal in the summer of 2013.
In 2010/11 his solid performances meant that he was voted Youth Team Player of the Year by the Supporters’ Association.
Originally a midfielder with a lovely right foot, he has been successfully converted to right-back where he has produced a series of impressive displays.
He was handed his First Team debut when he came off the bench against Oldham Athletic in March 2012 and he went on to enjoy a run in the side last term when he made nine starts at full-back.
Blessed with good vision, a potent crossing ability and a first class attitude, Richards looks to have all the attributes to make a successful career if he continues to progress at the rate he has been.
