Wow. A player that not many who saw forget, but not for the right reasons.

Lumbering centre forward Tony signed for Barnet in the summer of 2000 on a free transfer from London neighbours Leyton Orient.

He made a decent start to his Barnet career too, including one spectacular long range goal against Wycombe in the league cup at Adams Park. He looked the part, initially, at least. Then it all went wrong. So very wrong.

The phrase couldnt hit a barn door was certainly apt. He just could not offer anything a striker should. It was a disaster for the player and the football club, his one season with us, as we were relegated to the Conference with him as one of our regular front two.

By some sort of miracle, that can only rival Liam Hatch in the HOW ON EARTH HAVE WE MANAGED TO GET MONEY FOR HIM!? stakes, Richards was BOUGHT by Southend United in the summer of 2001, for a fee in the region of £35,000. A stunning bit of business by Barnet Football Club. He retired soon after, due to a knee problem.
