Richard was a member of the Diamonds youth team and joined the first team squad midway through their inaugural season. He rarely commanded a regular starting place in the first team during five seasons at the club, with many of his league appearances being from the bench. He was the elder brother of another former Diamond, Trevor Benjamin. Following promotion to the Southern League Premier Division, he continued to find his first team opportunities limited, with just nine starts in 1994/1995 season and only a single start in the 1995/1996 season, with just a couple more the following season as the Diamonds reached the Conference. He left the club in May 1997 after being released and joined Nuneaton Borough.

In 1999, Richard joined Stamford, spending several years there before moving to Raunds Town in the summer of 2003. After several years at Raunds, he spent a brief period at Long Buckby before signing for Wellingborough Town in November 2008. He returned to Stamford the following year, before retiring from the game. At the age of 39, he returned to the game signing for UCL Division One side Burton Park Wanderers at the end of March 2014 as a possible cover in a midfield role, although did not make an appearance.
