  • Richard Reynolds (born 15 February 1948) is an English former professional footballer whose career ran from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s. Born in Looe, Reynolds started his career as an apprentice at Plymouth Argyle. He made his debut in an FA Cup tie against Derby County on 9 January 1965, aged 16, and signed professional forms a month later. In all Reynolds was to make over 100 appearances for The Pilgrims. He had a loan spell at Yeovil, winning the Southern League in 1970–71. before moving to Portsmouth in the 1971 close season. He was to prove such a popular player that in 1972 he was awarded the title of Pompey’s Player of the Year. Other strikers came and went during a turbulent era at the club but Reynolds played on until the relegation season of 1975–76, his last game being a 3-1 win at Blackburn Rovers in February 1976. Reynolds left Portsmouth after a Football League Tribunal in which Reynolds was awarded a substantial amount of compensation for wages he later described as "disgusting". The tribunal also instructed Portsmouth to release Reynolds from his contract as they couldn't pay him. He never received the payment owed to him. Reynolds left Portsmouth in February 1976 to sign for the Dutch Eredivisie side Haarlem. Reynolds career was cut short by a serious knee injury sustained playing against Ajax Amsterdam. He later had spells as player-manager of non-league Chichester City (three-times), Petersfield, Fareham Town, Wick (twice) and Newport (IOW). Reynolds won three England Youth caps, playing in a 3–0 victory against Spain and defeats against France (1–2) and Czechoslovakia in the spring of 1966 whilst with Plymouth. (en)
