Justin Richards signed for the Harriers after being released from Peterborough at the end of the 06-07 season.    He made his name at Woking after ending a season there as the Leagues highest scorer and that attracted the attention of the Posh.

His one season there was not very productive though and on his release he was snapped up by the Harriers manager, Mark Yates.

Born locally in Sandwell, he signed for his home town club as a youth but failed to make it at the Hawthorns and joined Bristol Rovers for a fee of £75,000.    It seems that at all the clubs that he has been at, with the exception of Woking, he has failed to produce the goods.    We'll all be hoping that he can do it at Aggborough.

Mid way through the season and it just wasn't working out and he left the club during January to join Oxford Utd on loan until the end of the season.

The following season Justin finally showed us how good he could be and his partnership with Matt Barnes-Homer reaped dividends with both players scoring 21 goals each to take us to sixth place in the League by the end of the season.

It all meant nothing to our blinkered board though when he was told a few weeks later that his services were no longer needed as the squad was broken up.  He joined League One side Cheltenham Town in June on a one year contract.
