Not sure if anyone here knew him but I just got the awful news that former Chief Football Writer at the Herald, but a great friend to me and many others, passed away late on Sunday evening after a short illnsess.

Thoughts of course with his family. Bill worked with me at RM and we built our friendship there. He gave me strong counsel when I became Chair of the Trust.

News like this puts everything in perspective, at least for me.

A gentleman and a scholar..and one of the few people I knew who were as tall as me and a spirit to match!

RIP dear boy!

Terrible news - if you wanted a dictionary definition of an old school newspaperman, Bill Richards was it.

One of the best, for sure.

He'll be greatly missed.

A fantastic bloke who I had the pleasure of being friends with for the last 10 years or so. He will be sorely missed.

A really good journalist - as John says, an old school local newspaperman. Immensely knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the sports he covered. Simply a good bloke, he’ll be much missed.
