TIVERTON Town have signed 21-year-old Ryan Richards from Plymouth Parkway.

The fleet-footed forward was due to sign for a Swedish fourth division side this week but was persuaded by Tivvy boss John Clarkson to sign for the Yellows instead.

He has hit 52 goals in 62 games for Parkway including one against Exeter City in the Devon St Luke’s semi-final last week.

He also netted the winning penalty in the shoot-out.

Tiverton, whose last match was the 2-0 win at Merthr Town on February 4, are due to return to Southern league action at Godalming tomorrow (Saturday at 3pm).
