The full-back, who turned 20 while on the mid-season training camp in Spain last month, won the vote of Reading supporters to take home the Be Wiser Player of the Month award for the very first time.

He only played twice in February, but managed to score in both matches from left-back - his first ever senior goals!

Richards also contributed with a game-defining goal-line block against Nottingham Forest that secured a point for the Royals at the City Ground.

The impression the youngster made last month was clear to see, which earned him the award for February!

Watch the video above and hear from the man himself...
