Richard began working with Amaanah Refugee Services as a coach in 2014. He now looks after back office and off-pitch operations.
A life long Watford supporter, he grew up in the suburbs of North West London, before moving to the US in 2007. Richard works for Hirebrand, a marketing consultancy headquartered in Houston.
He played as a striker for the University of Essex, before his career was tragically derailed by a lack of talent, speed, positional awareness, ball skills, and stamina.
What he does have is a deep commitment to the refugee community and an almost religious devotion to the unifying power of soccer, which he refers to at all times as 'football'.
