Blythe commits for 2021/2022 season

Club favourite Rich Blythe has committed to stay with the Greenbacks for the coming season

Rich as we all know is a centre midfielder who is happy to mix it but is equally good with the ball at his feet, Richard is another player who has returned to the club 3 seasons ago after a season at Rugby. He was club captain in the promotion winning season and hopes that he can relieve that glory again this season. Richs footballing career started at Athletico Madrid as an apprentice regularly playing in the same team as Anton Griezmann.  Rich has though the unfortunate record of being the last player to score before both of the recent lockdowns so fingers crossed the next time he scores we won’t end up in a lockdown again.  Stu Storer said about Rich committing “Its great to have Rich staying he is someone who is great to have around the dressing room and his experience at this level is invaluable to the younger members of the squad, He can always be relied upon to put 100% in each and every game, having him commit to staying is a big plus for us as he has been chased by quiet a few other clubs this close season as his value and experience at this level can not be beaten and that is why he is so sought after.  Rich is one of those rare players who can play but also mix it if the need arises which sets him apart from many players at this level”
