Riccardo Amos Calder, a left back for the club, appeared as an unused substitute on 3 occasions during Villa’s 2014-15 Premier League campaign.
Riccardo was born in Birmingham on 26 January 1996.
Riccardo signed professional forms with Villa in July 2014 and he was promoted to the first team squad by Paul Lambert.
Lambert named Riccardo in the Premier League squad for the 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Saturday, 20 December 2014 and in the FA Cup squad for Villa’s 1-0 3rd Round win over Blackpool on Sunday, 4 January 2015 however Riccardo did not make it off the subs bench on either occasion.
Riccardo’s third and final squad appearance again came in the FA Cup with new Villa boss Tim Sherwood naming a youthful bench including Riccardo and Lewis Kinsella for the Quarter Final win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, 7 March 2015.
During the 2015-16 season Calder was not named by either Sherwood or his successor Rémi Garde in any match-day squads and he was sent out on loan by Sherwood to Dundee from August 2015 to January 2016, on returning to Villa, Sherwood was gone and his replacement Rémi Garde once again sent Riccardo out on loan, this time to Doncaster Rovers for the remainder of the season.
With Villa relegated to the Football League Championship and new boss Roberto Di Matteo installed, Riccardo was once again loaned to Doncaster Rovers from July 2016 to January 2017. Once again on Riccardo’s return to Villa there had been another managerial change and Steve Bruce again sent Calder out on loan with the left back signing for Lincoln City from March to May 2017.
Following the expiry of his contract at the end of that season, Calder moved on to Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC in July 2017 on a free transfer aged 21.
