After signing from Sunday League side Burbage Old Boys, Richards quickly became a fans favourite at Hinckley United, scoring nine goals in fifteen Conference North games for a struggling Knitters side, including a hat-trick in a 6-3 win against Corby Town.

He scored two goals in six appearances at the start of the 2013-14 season, in the Southern League Premier Division, before the Knitters were liquidated in October of that season.

Following the Knitters’ demise, Richards signed for Barwell and then Bedworth United, before joining Carl Abbott’s side in May 2014 and returned to AFC in 2017 after a brief spell at Shepshed Dynamo
