Ricardo who won two Humber Premier League titles and a National Cup with the club is sure to receive a warm welcome by all linked to the club.
Now with East Riding Carnegie, Ricardo has linked up with another former Town player, Michael O’Connell who was also part of the golden generation at Town.
A dominant force in the air and a great leader on the pitch, as the years have gone on Ricardo has reinvented himself from a midfield general into solid centre back.
Speaking about Ricardo’s return to Norwood ahead of the game, Carnegie’s skipper O’Connell said;
“Jonny has been one of our most consistent players this season and I expect he will be up for it tomorrow against Town, so I think he will do well.”
“When he lost the captaincy in pre season it was obviously the reason that he felt the time had come to leave the club, had it not been for that I think he would still be playing for Beverley Town, a club he was part of from the age of 16.”
“That said, their loss is our gain.”
Looking ahead to the game O’Connell is very confident his side will leave with all three points saying he is always confident going into a game with the squad they have got.
O’Connell unlike Ricardo has already experienced returning to Norwood to face his old club doing so in the colours of Chalk Lane.
Both sides go into the game having lost their previous fixtures but it may come down to the man who spent so many years at the club having the ultimate say in this fixture.
