Player Bio:

There would be few footballers in Queensland who could claim to have had a promising career more thoroughly jinxed by injury than the former Queensland Roar and New Zealand Knights A-League man, Jonti Richter. Five injury-cursed seasons since the demise of the Knights have curtailed his involvement in the game and brought him to season 2013 with a point or two to prove. Last year saw the winger hitting peak form before a workplace injury to his right ankle ended his season before the midway point. Nevertheless, when fit and firing Richter has demonstrated he remains a potent and unpredictable attacking weapon, so coach David Large has kept faith in him. Overdue for a change of luck, Richter could yet become a vital weapon in the Strikers’ armoury in their first NPL campaign.
