Career highlights


Ian won the Jack Clarke Medal for the best and fairest player in the WAFL Colts competition in 2006 before his dreams of player AFL football were dealt a blow when he missed selection in the draft.[1] 2007 was also frustrating for Richardson as he failed to break into Claremont’s strong league team despite strong form in the reserves.

Claremont Tigers


Debuting in Round 1 of the WAFL 2008 season against West Perth, Richardson managed to kick a goal in his first game. He went through the entire 2008 season managing to get a goal in every single match.[2] The goalsneak was awarded the Simpson Medal for his best-on-ground display for Western Australia in their 73-point victory over Queensland in Townsville.[3] The match was the first appearance for Ian in WA colours after he was overlooked for state junior representative teams.


Ian missed the first round of the 2009 season, but returned after Claremont's bye to play in the third round.
