Playing career

Ritchie played for Whitley Bay before joining Port Vale in December 1965. He became a regular in the side and is remembered by those who saw it for his forty-yard "goal of a lifetime" in a 2–1 win at Bradford City in a first round FA Cup match on 26 November 1966. He was sold to Preston North End for £17,500 in April 1967 and later moved on to Bradford City and Stafford Rangers.[1]
