Richard Reynolds was an English professional footballer (soccer player) whose career ran from the mid sixties[1] to the mid seventies[2]. Born in Looe on 15 February 1948[3] Reynolds won three England Youth caps[4] whilst with his first club Plymouth Argyle, for whom he mde his debut in an F.A.Cup tie against Derby County early in 1965[5]. In all Reynolds was to make over 100 appearances for The Pilgrims[6] (and had a loan spell at Yeovil[7])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 [8]. Other strikers came and went[9]during a turbulent era at the club but Reynolds played on until the disastrous relegation season of 1975/76- his last game being in a humiliating 3-0 home F.A. Cup defeat by Charlton[10]. He later had spells as player-manager of non league Chichester and Petersfield.
