He joined Ebbsfleet just under four years ago from Brentford, who he had in turn joined from Swindon Town. It was at Swindon that his career took off after struggling to make any kind of impression at his previous four clubs with a run of over seventy games giving him five goals.
Strangely after two seasons there he was released to join Brentford for one season before finally lining up with Ebbsfleet at the start of the 08-09 season. He completed an amazing hundred and eight games with 'Fleet and found the net twenty seven times while at the same time appearing for the Guyanan national side, through his fathers side, three times and scoring twice. He will be appearing in future games for them through the qualifying stages of the 2014 World Cup.
Ricky has signed a one year contract with the club.
Other news today saw defender Michael Briscoe moving on. It's long been known that he wasn't happy at Aggborough anymore after finding himself repeatedly in and out of favour and then being asked to take a salary reduction for the coming season.
Michael was rumoured to be signing for relegated Hereford but that fell through when they signed Luke Graham from FGR and he has now signed terms with AFC Telford.
Veteran striker Steve Guinan has elected to stay at Aggborough for one more season and will then hang his boots up for good and put all his endeavours into his coaching role at Hartpury College in Gloucester. His staying with the club is seen as a major coup for Steve Burr due to the need of a father figure in the dressing room to help control all the nursery kids.
The final move of the day has seen the former Harriers favourite Matt Barnes-Homer join also relegated Macclesfield Town after last seen playing in Sweden since he left Nuneaton Town last March. In his time with us he banged the goals in for fun and that convinced Luton that he was the right player to help them get back where they belong but their fans didn't think so and hounded him out of the club.
