Following an impressive trial period in the 2017-18 pre-season, Ben Richards-Everton signed a one-year deal with Stanley.

The 6 foot 5 defender, joined the youth ranks at Carlisle United in 2008 before spells in non-league with Hinckley United and Tamworth.

Richards-Everton would get his first taste of league football in Scotland, joining Premiership side Partick Thistle before a loan spell at League One Airdrieonians.

He would remain in League One with Dunfermline Athletic, playing 34 times as they won promotion in 2015-16.

A severe knee injury ended his 2016-17 campaign in October and he was released at the end of the season when his contract expired.
