Brother of Lou Richards

LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 - -WING HALF - FORWARDS By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 8-Jul-1950 p12 The Argus Week-End Magazine

WHILE Collingwood have been making many experiments at wing half-forward, RON RICHARDS and BILL WELSH are the players who have played there most regularly. Richards is a brother of Lou, the talented rover, and they are so much alike that when Ron occasionally loves he is mistaken for Lou.

Ron has the family ruggedness and determination - his mother was a member of the great football family, the Pannams. He is fast, a good mark, and elusive, and he favours the play-on style. After experience in the schoolboy competition con- ducted by the club, he joined the seconds when 16. He had two or three years there before joining the senior side in 1947. He had played 27 games up to the end of last season.

Ron, who is single, is an electrician in the employ of the Tramways Board. In the summer he enjoys a game of tennis and swims a lot.
