Richard Flynn joined us in 2003 and quickly made the step up from the Reserve team to the First team. Injuries hampered his progress in his first season where he was limited to just a handful of appearances. Flynn should great skill during the 2004/05 season which secured him second place in the Supporters Club Player of the Year Awards behind James Curtis. Flynn is tall and has great tackling abilities as well as being able to score goals from headers and even a free-kick at Bamber Bridge during the 2004/05 season.
