He represented the state as a coach for 26 years, currently sitting 3rd for all-time for years representing the state.

He was also involved as a player and coach in the Mens competition in the 80’s and 90’s.

Richard spent 21 years on the Board of Management including 5 years as the Vice President of the South Australian Softball Association. He was Chairman of the newly formed Adelaide Competition Sub-Committee in 1996, serving multiple times until his retirement in the 2016/17 season.
