A gold standard platform for athletes to create their own futures


Whether you are at a club, looking for a move, returning to play following Injury/Rehab you need to either get back as soon as possible or work on the small things that are going to give you that extra 1-2% advantage over your peers.

So how do you do that on this GLOBAL STAGE?

Well, football history is full of names who invested in themselves because they knew it would be repaid to them 10-fold: Ronaldo, Kane, Zlatan, and of course Odion Ighalo to name a few. The press has documented how those athletes put a personal backroom team around themselves to help them achieve the success they have had, and this is exactly what we aim to do for our clients.

We will bring together a team of professionals to take care of all your health and fitness needs, all you need to do is decide what services you want and when you want them and we will take care of the rest.

Not ready for a ‘team around you’ but want to train with us? No problem Players often come to us at peak times: Pre-Season, following Injury Rehab, during the winter break, or when out of contract. Whatever your situation – let us know what’s going on and we’ll get you fixed up with training like you’ve never experienced before.

Thank you, Wayne, for the continued support with Ewan’s sports performance. Your coaching has played a huge part in progressing Ewan’s strength, speed and fitness, so much so that he has been offered a further 2-year contract with a Rochdale Academy. Your sessions push him mentally and physically and he looks forward to getting back to the sessions.

I couldn't speak more highly of Wayne and the team at Richardson Sport. Not only is he a fantastic coach but a great mentor. He is really passionate about his students and takes time to understand what drives them to make a better athlete. Thank you Wayne and Richardson Sport

My daughter has just started a course of sessions with Wayne, she found the first session really useful. Her exact words were, ‘that you've connected a lot of dots’. She has always been a child that is eager to learn and be the best she can be. So she is really looking forward to working with you and can already see the benefit that you will bring to her football. Thank you.

My son spent around 10 weeks working with Wayne in his football athletic development sessions & loved it. He’s never been blessed with pace but Wayne taught him techniques that gave him the boost that he needed.
