Ricardo Fuller started his career at Tivoli Gardens before he was originally offered a contract with Charlton Athletic but this was later withdrawn when he failed his medical.

However, after back surgery, he recuperated with the Addicks reserves before joining Crystal Palace following a successful trial.

Nonetheless, his hopes of a lucrative long-term deal were dashed when new manager Steve Bruce released him in the summer of 2000.

He spent 2001-02 in Scotland on loan at Heart of Midlothian but the club could not afford to take him on full time and he was snapped up by Preston North End for £500,000 in June 2002.

Ricardo's transfer request was accepted by PNE in June 2004 and he went on to join Portsmouth in August 2004 with a two-year contract.

He subsequently moved on to Southampton in July 2005 in a two-year deal.

Ricardo joined Stoke City in August 2006 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2011 in December 2007.

He joined Charlton Athletic in August 2012 with a one-year contract.

Ricardo joined Blackpool in August 2013 with a one-year contract.

He joined Millwall in July 2014 with a one-year contract.

Ricardo joined Oldham Athletic in October 2015 with a contract to January 2016.
