Richard Taylor joined Southend in 2019 after being released as a scholar from Premier League club Burnley.

The centre back, who showed his versatility by filling in at left-back when needed, went straight into the first team mix at Blues, featuring regularly through pre-season before eventually making his debut in November 2019 against AFC Wimbledon in the EFL Trophy.

He followed that up a few days later with his first league start against Oxford United.

A ball-playing centre back who likes to bring the ball out and always looks to pass the ball forward, Taylor begun the 2020/21 season as a starter in the defence under Mark Molesley.
