Kilmarnock, Ayrshire born centre half Hugh Richmond began his football career with Kilbirnie Ladeside in 1911 and joined Scottish League club Kilmarnock in 1913, playing for Galston in 1914 and Arthurlie in 1916 before moving south after the conclusion of the First World War to join Second Division club Leicester Fosse in 1919, making his Football League debut against Wolverhampton Wanderers that August. Initially playing in the forwards, he scored his first goal in the return fixture at Molineux the following week in a 1-1 draw, and had a loan spell at non league Nuneaton Town later in 1919.

After 16 first team appearances in 1920-21, he only played once more for Leicester in 1921-22 before moving to fellow Second Division club Coventry City in the 1922 close season after scoring twice in 24 appearances for The Foxes. At Coventry he was a regular for two seasons and scored 14 goals in the first half of the 1923-24 season playing as a centre forward, including a hat-trick in a win over Nelson in November 1923 at the start of a run of 9 goals in 5 matches. But he lost his place the following season and when Coventry were relegated in 1925 he left Highfield Road after 19 goals in 67 appearances, joining Queen’s Park Rangers. He had a single season at Loftus Road, making 10 appearances for Rangers before moving to the North East in 1926, where he played non league football first for Blyth Spartans and then for Spennymoor United in 1929 before his eventual retirement.
