Richardson formerly played for Georgetown FC and Camptown Georgetown in his home country, and for Joe Public from Trinidad and Tobago. While playing for Joe Public in the CONCACAF Champions League 2008–09 Preliminary Round he scored a hat-trick, helping his team eliminate New England Revolution, and bringing himself to international attention.
He was waived by Colorado on 27 June 2009, only making one appearance for the club. After a successful trial with the Carolina RailHawks the club announced the signing of Richardson on 9 July 2009. He became an instant impact where he was able to register his first hat trick in a 4–0 victory over Miami FC. He scored the fastest goal in club history against Puerto Rico Islanders at the second minute. He finished off the season as tied in first for most assists with five, and was the second highest goal scorer with six goals. He helped his Carolina side clinch a playoff spot by finishing second in the regular season standings. On 5 February 2010 Carolina re-signed Richardson to a one-year deal with a club option for 2011.
Richardson is a current member of the Guyana national football team, having scored 15 goals in 39 games.
