Richie joined Goresbrook in 2000, becoming the first player to make the move across the car park from M&B.
He initially flourished as an all-rounder in a Goresbrook side with significantly less batting than it has today, hitting a pair of league tons against Eastwood in the early 2000's, before settling in as opening bowler, lower order not out specialist and long time 1st team skipper.
As 1's captain as virtually all of today's 1st XI came through into senior cricket, Richie's Yorkshire "give 'em nowt" ethos has had a major influence on Goresbrook's approach to bowling and drink buying over the past decade, although thankfully his approach to fielding has not been widely copied.
