Arsenal Career 1999 - 2002
Position:
Appearances 1 (0 starts, 1 as a sub)
Goals 0

That came in a 4-0 League Cup victory over Manchester United in November 2001 when Ricketts came off the bench as a second-half substitute.

But too many were ahead of him in the pecking order and Ricketts made the switch to Spurs in 2002.

He did not break into the first team at White Hart Lane that year but became a regular in the 2003/04 campaign while Arsenal were conquering all in the Premier League.

Managerial changes at Tottenham saw Ricketts’ midfield opportunities limited and he enjoyed loan spells with Coventry and Wolves, before joining the latter permanently in 2005.

Ricketts later featured for QPR (loan), Barnsley, Toronto FC, Diosgyori VTK, Dacia Chisinau, SV Wilhelmshaven, Shamrock Rovers and Exeter.
