Richards signed for Crewe during the summer of 2015 having left Bristol City.
The 25-year-old joined the Robins in December 2013, initially on loan, before penning a permanent 18-month deal in January 2014 – though the stopper never made a first team appearance for the Club.
He started his career with Cardiff City at the age of nine and the Welshman rose through the ranks with the Bluebirds before his switch to Bristol.
Now into his fifth season at Crewe, the stopper made his breakthrough into the side in 2017/18, making 14 appearances in all competitions.
He started the 2018/19 campaign as first choice, making five appearances before being ousted by Ben Garratt.
