Pre-Chelsea career

Richard joined Chelsea as an Under-9.

Chelsea career

Richard made his Under-18 debut during the 2013-14 season whilst still an Under-15, and featured again during the 2014-15 as a schoolboy. Serving as something of a utility defender in 2015-16, able to feature in any position at the back in Joe Edwards' 4-2-3-1 and 3-4-2-1 formations of choice, he featured in more than half of the league campaign and made two Under-21 appearances towards the end of the season.

He began to assert himself more capably in 2016-17, leading a stingy Under-18 defence that racked up 18 clean sheets in all competitions on their way to a domestic treble. He stepped up almost full-time to the Development Squad towards the end of the season, starting six times and facing a number of senior opponents including Danny Welbeck and Jay Rodriguez, faring well in the process.


Richard has no international representation to date.
