Career

Newcastle United

Richardson started his career at non-league club Walker Central, and was working for Newcastle City Council as an electrician before signing for Newcastle United in July 2010.[2] He appeared on the bench for Newcastle United for the first time against Fulham on 1 February 2011 but was not used as a substitute. He failed to make another substitute appearance that season. He impressed while playing for the Magpies' U-18 side and the reserves, and subsequently signed on a month's loan for League One side Leyton Orient on 5 August 2011.[3]

Leyton Orient

He made his professional league debut on 6 August 2011, the opening day of the season, in Orient's 1–0 defeat at Walsall, coming on as a 69th minute substitute.[4] In his first start for the club, the Carling Cup first round match at Southend United on 9 August, Richardson scored the opening goal, and later missed a penalty in the penalty shoot-out, which Orient won 4–3.[5] After making four appearances in the League and Carling Cup, he returned to Newcastle on 5 September.[6]
