Ilkeston Town Juniors Juventus (current Sunday club)
The teams' latest signing. Rich was brought in to complete the squad for the season and has had the impact that was expected. Manager Dave Morley has been chasing Rich for six months until finally getting his man, having initially played in AFC Kirk Hallam's first ever junior match against Clipstone in the summer.
Rich brings a mix of reliability, strength, skill, discipline and respect to the team. Rich is what would be known as "the model professional". He trains well, plays well and wherever he is required on a pitch with the minimum fuss. Having only played two matches so far, there will be much more to come from Rich following a successful few years with his Sunday team.
