FameRank: 5

"Joseph Richardson" was an England/English professional football (soccer)/footballer.

Richardson joined Blyth Spartans F.C./Blyth Spartans from local side New Delavel Villa F.C./New Delavel Villa. His form with Spartans was impressive enough to earn a £250 move to Newcastle United F.C./Newcastle United in 1929.

He went on to play over 200 league games for the Magpies, and after ending his playing career in 1938 joined the coaching staff where he remained until 1977, serving the club for 48 years (though this still comes nowhere near the 62 years that Sandy Mutch served Newcastle as a player, physio and coach).

Richardson died in 1977..
