Rest in Peace, Dean Richards

I am very sad and stunned to learn that the former Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers centre back has passed away at the young age of 36 years old.

I remember being impressed with Richards' demeanour and stature on the pitch - a composed and strong figure to have in the centre-back position.

His career was stopped short because of worrying dizzy spells and headaches. It was a profound disappointment to see a talented and committed player have to retire early from the game and supporters across the footballing community wished him good health in retirement. The BBC news report written in the last hour does not reveal whether these medical problems are the cause for his premature passing.

On behalf of all at EFT and the wider football supporting public we offer our sincere condolences to Dean Richards' family and friends.

Rest in Peace, Dean Richards.

My God.

The same Dean Richards, who was a decent central defender, demised so early in his life in his thirties. It really does, for me at least, bring home that no matter who you are, how you are, where you are, death will come and take you.

It also emphasises that you should, along with the everything else necessary for life, that you should enjoy it as much as you can.

My condolences.
