PositionMidfielder

Richardson was very much the unsung hero of Chesterfield's promotion campaign in 2000-01.

Having fought a lengthy battle to overcome injuries, he joined the Spireites in August 2000 and settled down well in the midfield, providing a firm platform for other less experienced players.

Richardson used his vision to great effect and also did much of the ball winning for Marcus Ebdon.

As the campaign progressed his stamina improved and he developed into a great asset for the club.

Chesterfield's assistant manager extended his playing contract at Saltergate by a further year in June 2003.
