Walsall player 515. Michael Barrington Ricketts

Michael Barrington Ricketts (born 4 December 1978) is a former English football player. He played as a striker and was capped once by England, in a friendly against the Netherlands in 2002.
Ricketts had a 14-year career which saw him play for Walsall, Bolton Wanderers, Middlesbrough, Leeds United, Stoke City, Cardiff City, Burnley, Southend United, Preston North End, Oldham Athletic and Tranmere Rovers.
Ricketts began his career at Walsall, for whom he signed in 1996. He made 76 league appearances for them, scoring 14 times.
In July 2000, then First Division side Bolton Wanderers signed him for £400,000. He started his Bolton career in impressive style, scoring 24 times as Bolton won promotion to the Premier League through the playoffs. His finest moments at Bolton Wanderers include sealing victory against Preston North End in the Division One Play-off final in 2001 and scoring the winning goal at Old Trafford in a 2–1 win for Bolton over Manchester United in the 2001–02 Premier League season.
Ricketts continued scoring in his first season in the Premier League, hitting 15 goals by February, and this form led to his call-up for England’s friendly against The Netherlands in February 2002. Ricketts played 45 minutes in that game but failed to score, and subsequently did not score for Bolton again all season.
In January 2003, Middlesbrough spent £3.5 million to sign him from Bolton. He failed to recapture his goal-scoring form, netting just four times in 38 matches. While at Middlesbrough he did, however, win the League Cup in the 2003–04 season, coincidentally against Bolton.
In June 2004, he signed for Championship side Leeds United on a free transfer. Ricketts failed to impress, failing to score in 25 league appearances, although he did manage a solitary goal in the League Cup against Swindon Town.
He was then loaned out to Stoke City in February, but also failed to impress there, and returned to Leeds. He made five more appearances, scoring once against Oldham Athletic, again in the League Cup. He was then loaned out to Cardiff, where he scored four goals in 11 appearances, before returning to Leeds. On 30 January 2006 he signed for Championship side Burnley in a loan deal that would keep him at Turf Moor until the end of the season. Despite scoring twice in his first three matches against Plymouth Argyle and Ipswich Town, he again failed to impress (he did not score again) and returned to Leeds after the season had finished.

On 30 June 2006, Ricketts signed a two-year deal with Championship side Southend United with an option to extend for another year. A clause in the contract he signed stated that he was prohibited from playing against Leeds United. However, after only a couple of months into the new season, Southend released Ricketts on the basis that he was overweight and had put on weight since joining the club, questioning his level of fitness.
After leaving Southend, Ricketts joined Preston North End, playing a handful of games for their first team. In March 2007 he scored the winner against Ipswich Town. However, Ricketts’ fitness and his inability to break into the first team on a regular basis led to him being released by Preston on 8 May 2007, again leaving him without a club until being picked up by Oldham Athletic, for whom he signed until 2010.[] He scored two league goals during his time at Oldham, in victories over Swansea City and his former club Walsall.
On 2 November 2007, he returned to his first club Walsall on a three-month loan deal from Oldham. He made his second debut for Walsall in a league match against Cheltenham Town on 3 November. On 31 January 2008, transfer deadline day, Ricketts had his contract cancelled by Oldham Athletic.
On 24 July 2008, Ricketts once again rejoined Walsall and scored nine goals in his third spell there. At the game against Southend United played at Roots Hall on 7 March 2009, Ricketts was sent off in the 14th minute when he attempted to punch Kevin Betsy. At the end of the season he was released.
On 14 August 2009, it was announced that Ricketts had signed a one-year deal with Tranmere Rovers (his 11th professional club). Ricketts stated playing for John Barnes was a major factor in his decision to join the club. He made his debut for the club as a substitute in a League Cup game against his former club Bolton Wanderers on 25 August. He scored his first goal for Tranmere in a 2–1 defeat at Exeter City on 19 September 2009. On 21 January 2010, Ricketts had cancelled his contract by mutual consent.
On 17 January 2011, Ricketts pleaded guilty to a charge of common assault after punching and headbutting his ex-girlfriend. He was sentenced to a 12-month community order and fined £200 and ordered to pay £85 costs.

Walsall player 514. Anthony Willis “Tony” Richards

Anthony Willis “Tony” Richards (6 March 1934 – 4 March 2010) was an English footballer who played as a forward.
Associated with Birmingham City as a teenager, he joined Walsall in 1954. He became the club’s top scorer for five successive seasons, firing the “Saddlers” to two successive promotion from the Fourth Division into the Second Division in 1959–60 and 1960–61. After 185 goals in 334 league games for the club, he was sold on to Port Vale for £9,000 in March 1963. Twice becoming the club’s top scorer, a series of injuries brought his career to a close, and he moved into non-league football in May 1966 with Nuneaton Borough and Dudley Town.
Richards was in the Army from 1952 to his demobbing in 1954, playing football (as captain) for the Battery and Regimental team whilst serving in Egypt.
Richards started his career with Birmingham City, but did not make a league appearance for the club before joining Walsall in 1954. Walsall finished 23rd in the 24 team Third Division South in 1954–55 under the stewardship of Frank Buckley, and were forced to apply for re-election. They rose to 20th in 1955–56 under John Love, and then 15th in1956–57. Richards came to prominence after Bill Moore was appointed manager, and finished as the club’s top scorer in 1957–58 with 20 goals, as a 20th-place finish meant that Walsall became founder members of the Fourth Division. He scored 28 goals in 1958–59, as his team posted a sixth-place finish, two places and six points behind promoted Shrewsbury Town. His 26 goals in 1959–60 helped to fire Walsall to the top of the table, a clear five points ahead of second place Notts County. He was the highest goal scorer in the Third Division in 1960–61 with 36 goals, as he fired the “Saddlers” to a second successive promotion as runners-up, six points behind champions Bury. His 20 goals in1961–62 helped to secure the club’s place in the Second Division. However they were relegated in 1962–63, as for the first time in six seasons Richards was not the club’s top goal-scorer. In his nine years at Fellows Park, Richards scored 185 goals in 334 league games, and became the club’s second-highest goal scorer.
He joined Freddie Steele’s Port Vale for £9,000 in March 1963. Amazingly, with 13 goals in 14 games in the 1962–63 season he had become the club’s top scorer despite only playing for three months of the season. The following season, with nine months to play in, a leg injury Richards suffered in September meant he was only able to re-create his previous season’s record; scoring 13 goals in 34 games, once more becoming the club’s top scorer. He hit a hat-trick against Bristol City in a 4–1 win at Vale Park on 31 August 1963. However he began to be plagued by injuries at Vale, missing the start of the 1964–65 relegation season after suffering the effects of an insect bite. In September 1964 he sustained a cartilage injury that required surgery. He scored five goals in 20 appearances in 1965–66, but he never really recovered after his operation, and was given a free transfer by manager Jackie Mudie in May 1966. He finished his career with non-league clubs Nuneaton Borough and Dudley Town.
Before he died, Richards was appointed an Honorary Life President of Walsall, to mark his contribution to the club and his cult status amongst the club’s fans. Richards died on 4 March 2010, two days before what would have been his 76th birthday. A minute’s silence was held before Walsall’s 2–2 draw with Millwall on 7 March as a tribute to Richards and Macclesfield Town manager Keith Alexander, who had died on 3 March

Richards once again rejoined Brighton on loan until the end of December 2008 on 21 July 2008.
Richards made his Ipswich return in 2009 under new manager Roy Keane starting against Cardiff in a 3–0 win at Ninian Park. This would turn out to be his last game for the club as he was released on 14 May 2009.
Richards had a trial spell with Burton Albion scoring in a friendly against Ilkeston Town, however following a successful trial at League One side Walsall, Richards penned a two-year contract with the Saddlers.

Walsall player 511. Reuben James Reid

Reuben James Reid (born 26 July 1988) is an English footballer who currently plays for Plymouth Argyle as a striker. Born in Bristol, he has played in the Football League for Plymouth Argyle, Rochdale, Torquay United, Wycombe Wanderers, Brentford, Rotherham United, West Bromwich Albion, Peterborough United, Walsall, Oldham Athletic and Yeovil Town.
Reid was born in Bristol and attended Fairfield Grammar School. He joined Plymouth Argyle early in the 2005–06 season after attending trials with Manchester United and Crystal Palace. He soon impressed, playing for the youth team, with his quick feet, strong upper body, and regular goals. Reid gave up the chance of a professional cricket career with Gloucestershire, having played for their second XI, to pursue his career with Argyle and was rewarded with a professional contract in February 2006, along with fellow trainees Scott Laird and Chris Zebroski. He made his debut in the final game of the season against Ipswich Town. He signed a one-year contract the following close-season, with a further year’s extension being agree in September 2006.
On 5 October 2006 he joined Kidderminster Harriers on a one-month loan and scored on his debut for them two days later. He was sent off in the final game of his loan spell, a 1–1 draw away to Exeter City and was recalled by Plymouth after being banned for three games. On returning to Plymouth, Reid played in both FA Cup 3rd round ties against Peterborough United, as well as making a couple of league substitute appearances, before going out on loan for the rest of the 2006–07 season to Rochdale on 25 January 2007. However, Rochdale ended his loan after a month, with Plymouth manager Ian Holloway reported as saying “They did not want him there any more. It is internal and I deal with it”. Reid was suspended by Holloway for two weeks on his return to Plymouth.
On 22 March 2007, Reid joined Torquay United on loan until the end of the season.[9] He made his debut as a second-half substitute for Ryan Dickson, also on loan from Plymouth, and scored a last minute winner as Torquay won 1–0 at home to Stockport County. He started the next game, scoring as Torquay lost 2–1 at home to Walsall.
Reid played in Argyle’s first two League Cup games of the 2007–08 season, before being loaned to Wycombe Wanderers on 31 August 2007 for the remainder of the season.[10]On 15 September 2007, Reid came on as a substitute to make his Wycombe debut against Macclesfield Town, and scored in the 89th minute. Wycombe ended his loan spell early. and Reid returned to Argyle in December only to be told by new Plymouth Argyle manager Paul Sturrock that he would be released at the end of the season. He joined Brentford on a three-month loan deal on 31 January 2008. He scored his first and only goal for the club in a 3–1 defeat at Darlington.
He had a trial with Oxford United in June 2008, but signed for Rotherham United on 22 July 2008, after impressing on trial during the 2008–09 pre-season. He made an immediate impact to the squad, scoring the only goal as Rotherham won 1–0 at home to Lincoln City in the first game of the season. He became an instant hit with the Millers’ faithful, scoring both the equaliser and winning penalty against local rivals Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup. In the next round, Reid scored the winning penalty again, this time to knock out Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers. Reid scored his first ever hat-trick in the Millers’ 5–1 demolition of relegation threatened Chester City, it was the first time he’d scored more than one goal in a game, the following weekend he scored again in Rotherham’s 2–1 over promotion chasing Rochdale, he also smashed a penalty against the bar. This goal took his tally to 13 for the season in all competitions. In the Millers next home game against local rivals Chesterfield, Reid bagged two goals including a superb lob in the Millers’ 3–0 win. In the Millers next game, against Bury, he scored a penalty in a 1–1 draw. Reid then added another two goals to his overall tally, when he scored in the Millers’ mid-week 4–2 win over doomed Luton Town, and an audacious 30-yard strike in the 1–0 win over Aldershot Town, to take him to 19 in all competitions.
In the summer of 2009, Reid looked set to move to work under Ian Holloway at Blackpool but instead signed for West Bromwich Albion for an undisclosed amount. He made his West Brom debut away at Bury in the 1st round of the League Cup on 11 August, but struggled to nail down a first team place consistently due to high competition on the forward line.
Reid moved on loan to Peterborough United in January 2010 and was scheduled to remain there for three months, but was recalled by his parent club prior to the end of his 93 days. On 23 January 2010, Reid made his debut for Peterborough in a 2–1 loss against Sheffield Wednesday. Reid signed on loan for Walsall on 19 August 2010 until January 2011. Manager Chris Hutchings described Reid as “a young, hungry player with a proven track record [who] can play out wide or through the middle.” He scored his first goal for Walsall on his debut against Plymouth Argyle on 21 August 2010, scoring the winning goal in the 70th minute of the 2–1 victory. Reid said he was grateful to Walsall for giving him the chance to play regularly.
On 28 January 2011, Oldham Athletic signed Reid from West Bromwich Albion until the end of the season with an option to extend. He made his début the day after signing, coming on as a substitute against the 2–2 draw against Carlisle United, and made his first full start against Huddersfield Town on 12 February 2011 in a 0–0 draw at the Galpharm Stadium. His first goal for the club was the final goal scored against Hartlepool United in a 4–0 win on 1 February, and although he scored a second in a 2–0 win against Notts County, at the end of the season it was confirmed that the option to extend had not been taken up by the club.
On 20 May, however, Oldham announced that Reid had informed them he wanted to exercise an option to stay on reduced terms, and as such he had agreed a new deal for the 2011–12 season. He started the season well, scoring five goals before the end of September, but a thigh injury sustained in early October against Milton Keynes Dons kept him out of the reckoning till March. After that he was unable to re-establish himself as a regular, and scored just one goal, which came in a 3–2 defeat at Rochdale.
He was released by Oldham at the end of the 2011–12 season, along with eight other players.
Keen to move closer to his home in Bristol, Reid signed a two-year deal with League One side Yeovil Town, to take effect on 1 July 2012. Manager Gary Johnson commented favourably on the player’s pace and power. On his move, Reid says moving to Yeovil could improve his form. He scored his first goal for Yeovil in a 4–0 win against Scunthorpe, and followed this by scoring twice against former club West Brom in a 4–2 defeat the next Tuesday.
Reid returned to Plymouth Argyle in January 2013 on loan for one month. It was extended for a second month in March after Reid made six appearances without scoring a goal. Reid scored his first goal for the club in a 2–0 win at Southend United, and at the end of the month the loan was extended until the end of the season.
In June 2013, it was confirmed Reid would rejoin Plymouth Argyle on loan until the end of the 2013–14 season.
Reid scored 21 goals for Plymouth in the 2013–14 season, being the first Plymouth striker to score 20+ goals in one season since Tommy Tynan in 1984. He also became the first Argyle player to score a hat trick since Vincent Péricard in 2006. He was awarded the Plymouth Argyle player of the season award on the last home game of the season.
Reid returned to Yeovil before being released at the end of the 2013–14 season, along with three other players.
After several weeks of speculation, Reuben signed a two-year contract with Plymouth Argyle in June 2014. He scored a hat-trick in the Derby match at Exeter City on 21 February 2015.

Walsall player 510. George Hull Reid

George Hull Reid (16 January 1896 – 1967) was an Irish professional footballer, who played for Blackpool, Walsall, Cardiff City, Fulham, Stockport County, Rotherham County and represented Ireland.
After starting his career in his home country, Reid moved to The Football League in 1920, signing for Blackpool. After only a handful of appearances for the club he joined Walsall where his talent for scoring began to emerge, finishing as the sides top scorer in his first season with 22 goals in 34 league games. The following season he had scored 9 goals in 13 matches when he moved to Cardiff City in December 1922, scoring on his debut in a 5-1 defeat to Manchester City. Four months after joining the Welsh side, Reid was handed his first and only cap for Ireland when he played in a 1-0 defeat to Scotland on 3 March 1923.
However he was forced out of the Cardiff side by Len Davies and was unable to regain his place prompting a move to Fulham in 1923. Reid would go on to make just 25 league appearances in the Football League with short spells at Stockport County and Rotherham County before moving into non-league football with Mid Rhondda United, just two years after making his international debut.

Walsall player 509. Marco Reich

Marco Reich (born 30 December 1977) is a German retired footballer.
He made his professional debut in October 1996 with Kaiserslautern in the . Bundesliga and subsequently played five seasons for the club, four of them in the Bundesliga after they were promoted there in 1997. He also won the Bundesliga champions title with Kaiserslautern in 1998.
In the summer of 2001, he moved to Köln and spent one season with the club, making 24 Bundesliga appearances without scoring a goal. He then moved to Werder Bremen next summer, subsequently spending one season and a half with the club, but only making 17 Bundesliga appearances with no goals scored before moving to Derby County of then Football League First Division in January 2004. At Derby, he spent a bit more than one season and a half before moving to Crystal Palace in September 2005. The highlight of his time at Palace was arguably when he scored the winning goal to knock European champions Liverpool out of the 2005/06 League Cup.
Reich also won one international cap for Germany, playing 78 minutes in their 3–3 draw with Colombia in a friendly match played in Miami, Florida on 9 February 1999.

He has a reputation for starting strongly at clubs, before fading away and falling out of favour, as has been the case with his last three clubs. At Werder Bremen, he was earmarked as the replacement for Oliver Bierhoff in the German national team, before losing his first-team place and moving to Derby County on a free transfer. There, a series of virtuoso performances helped to keep the club in the Championship, and he also gave many autographs to fans. He eventually left the club in much the same way as Werder Bremen, signing for Crystal Palace. Marco then moved to German side Kickers Offenbach on 30 January 2007 on a free transfer.
He joined Walsall on a free transfer in August 2008 after being released by Offenbach following their relegation from the second tier of German football. On 2 May 2009, he signed a contract with Jagiellonia after being released by Walsall. He has recently been critical of the standard of football in the Ekstraklasa, comparing it to the lower divisions of the German League, although he did speak favourably about teams like Wisla Krakow and Lech Poznan. In January 2010, he signed for WAC St. Andrä.
