Friday Jun 1, 2018

The Club are delighted to confirm the signing of forward Richard Peniket from Gateshead.

Richard signs a one year deal with the Reds.

Peniket started his career at Walsall and in 2009 joined Fulham, signing his first professional contract with the Cottagers in 2010. In 2011 Richard moved on loan to Hereford until the end of the season.

Richard would then have loan spells at Kidderminster, AFC Telford United and Farnborough during 2013 before being released by Fulham at the end of the 2012/13 season.

A move to Tamworth followed in 2013 before switching to Halifax Town in June 2014, where Richard made 90 appearances from 2014-2017, scoring 17 goals.

Peniket would then join Gateshead in May 2017 and made 50 appearances, scoring 11 goals during the 2017/18 season in the National League.

Billy Heath spoke with Amar after bringing Peniket to the club:

“Rich is another very good player, we are very pleased to get him and we’ve worked hard to get him to the club.”

“He has been a regular at Gateshead and also played under me at Halifax during the promotion campaign. He is a strong player, very mobile and can hold the ball up well. He provides another dangerous option up front, scores important goals and adds strength in depth to us.”

“We are bringing in strong, experienced and quality players here at the Reds and Rich is another strong signing for us to add to the squad.”
