Born and raised in Lewisham, Rodel 'RJ' Richards was previously with Arsenal and attended Prendergast Vale College.
A forward who is a real predator in the box, he scored two hat-tricks in 10 days in different cup competitions for our Under-18s in December, 2017, and finished the 2017-18 campaign with 15 goals in all competitions at that level to his name - seven in the league, five in the Under-18 Premier League Cup and three in the FA Youth Cup over a combined 27 appearances.
He also scored on his solitary substitute appearance in the Under-19 UEFA Youth League - a 4-1 home triumph against APOEL in December, 2017.
RJ previously enjoyed a good season with our Under-16s in 2016-17, netting 27 times, while he also stepped up for his Under-18s debut as a substitute in a defeat to Aston Villa in February, 2017.
