PAST PLAYER PROFILE - Richie Partridge

Richie Partridge: Midfield 1999-2005
Date of Birth: 12/09/1980
Birthplace: Dublin
Other clubs: Coventry City loan
1st team games: 3

Republic of Ireland Under-21 international winger Richie Partridge has been released by Liverpool at the end of the 2004/05 season.

He scored on his senior bow in a 4-0 friendly win at Bournemouth in the 1999/2000 season and then got a first team chance in the emphatic Worthington Cup 4th Round 8-0 victory at Stoke City's Britannia Stadium in November 2000. Partridge started on the right wing in the Reds record 8-0 away victory.

Since that 45 minutes at Stoke he had to wait four more years for another first team chance under Rafael Benitez. Partridge made impressive substitute appearances in the Carling Cup wins over Middlesbrough and Tottenham en route to the final.

Unfortunately he suffered many injury problems during his time at Liverpool. Partridge had a serious cruciate knee ligament injury sustained in a collision with a team-mate during a reserve match in November 2003 that kept him out of action for up to 10 months.

He also spent the entire 2002/03 season on loan at Coventry City and received many favourable reviews for his performances.
