Rushall Olympic have announced the return of striker Richard Brodie.

It is well-known that the 31-year-old former York City man has been well-travelled within non-league in recent years, representing clubs including Stockport County, Southport, Aldershot Town and Skelmersdale United, to name just a few. Most recently, he was with Warrington Town, but has now re-signed with the Pics after representing the club in 2017/18.

The Gateshead native told the club’s website:

“I am absolutely delighted to be back here. This was the place where I got my mojo back, where I started to enjoy my football again and, crucially, felt so at home and part of things.

“My decision to leave in the summer was based purely on my family and work commitments, but I need to put myself first and that means coming back here and enjoying my football again. I am very grateful to Liam (McDonald) for leaving the door open for me to come back and giving me this opportunity. I will be doing all I can to repay his faith on the pitch.

“He is a manager who put his trust and faith in me from the start; he got to know me as a player and as a person before forming his own opinions of me. I just want to work hard and help this club get to where it wants to be. You never stop learning in football and are always seeking to better yourself.

“The challenge of playing in this League excites me and I know that I am coming to a very special football club which feels like home, much the same as when I was at York City and played some of the best football of my career.”
