Richard Alexander "Ricky" Waddell (born 4 February 1981 in Falkirk) is a former Scottish footballer who is currently a coach at Motherwell.[1]

Career[edit]

Waddell began his career with hometown team Falkirk, before joining Partick Thistle in 2003. He spent two years with the Jags, before having spells at Hamilton Academical and Forfar Athletic.

In 2006, he left Scotland, and joined Singaporean outfit Senkang Punggol. He returned to his home country in 2007, signing for Ayr United, before joining Airdrie United later in the same year.

He joined Clyde on 2 June 2008.[1] He made his Clyde debut in a 2-0 victory against Alloa Athletic in the Scottish Challenge Cup in August 2008.[2] Waddell's first goal for Clyde turned out to be the winning goal in a 3-2 victory over St. Johnstone on 30 August 2008.[3] Waddell's contract was terminated in June 2009, following Clyde's relegation and financial troubles.[4] He went on to rejoin Airdrie United. After a season back at Airdrie, he joined Clyde again, where he stayed for a year, before being released in May 2011.[5]
