Northamptonshire Player Number: 496

Richard’s selection for the North’s one-day squad to play the South in the UAE this March set the seal on a remarkable first full season with Northamptonshire.  The Blackpool-born seamer – a pillar of his hometown club in the Northern Premier League for a number of years, and a Minor Counties player with Cumberland since 2010 – secured a trial at Wantage Road in 2015, and tasted first-class cricket towards the end of that summer against Australia and Glamorgan.  Joining the club initially on a ‘match-by-match’ basis, he soon did enough in 2016 to secure a full three-year deal – impressing in the shorter version with a blend of accuracy and genuine pace.  In the successful T20 campaign last season he was the Steelbacks’ most economical bowler, conceding less than six runs an over.
